Professional Experience

Hudson Valley-based travel and food writer and author of Catalog: The Illustrated History of Mail Order Shopping. I blog at Garlic Escapes and I'm writing a book on the history of garlic. I've written about Seoul for lovers of food, design, shopping, theater, and the outdoors; a luxury lodge in Montenegro; women who make shea butter in Uganda, and rug-maker James Tufenkian's resurrection of the rug trade in Armenia. I'm especially fond of Eastern Europe and recently returned from Ukraine and Moldova.
