Currently looking for employment as a writer/editor in the food/drinks/lifestyle space. Would also move to wine country for a cool job. Check out my Linkedin profile and see a curated portfolio of my work on Contently.
I moved all the way from Seattle to New York to become Senior Editor at Wine Enthusiast. I was also Senior Digital Editor.
I’ve written a couple personal essays for the magazine, the “Last Drop” on the final page of each issue.
The first is “Flying Blind While Tasting Wine.” It’s all about anxiety.
The second is about traveling wine country with my mom after the death of my father. Read “Growing Closer in Distant Vineyards.” (Grab a Kleenex or two.)
Wondering what it’s like to live on a family farm and cidery in the dead of winter? I wrote about that, too.
Prior to that I was Drinks Editor at msn.com.
Look at all the posts I wrote for Grape Collective:
Peruse my nearly five years of work as Wine Editor for Foodista.com.
2013 Saveur Best Food Blog Awards finalist in the Wine or Beer Blog Category? And 2015 finalist for Best Wine Coverage? Yes and yes.
I love Skittles more than Marshawn Lynch. Especially with wine:

Ten Things About Me:
I’ve visited vineyards and wineries in South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Chile, Argentina, France, Italy, Portugal, Spain, and Greece. (Also California, Washington, Oregon, New York, and Virginia.)
I like t-shirts and jeans with my wine.
I have ten years of experience in the retail wine business.
I’ve worked in restaurants and bakeries in Flagstaff and Chicago.
My decade in Seattle was spent entirely on Capitol Hill. Find out 17 Things I’ll Miss About Seattle.
I’m also fond of beer and cider. Ooh, and cocktails. (Get a recipe for a drink that has a float of red wine on top.)
I will dazzle or dismay you with an overabundance of parenthetical asides and exclamation points. (Seriously! It’s who am!)
I’d rather be drinking Champagne.
I love v-neck sweaters, though recently I’ve leaned more crew neck.
I’m happy that you read all of these, and hope you’ll visit often.
Check out my ebook in the Beginners Guide to Wine series! How could you not have a thirst to know more about Melon de Bourgogne? (Seriously!)
