Hi, I'm a freelance writer based in Brooklyn, NY, contributing to publications like Saveur, Bloomberg, Tasting Table, The New York Post, and some other places.

I also produce Beer Sessions Radio on the Heritage Radio Network, a new beer podcast called Steal This Beer, and do some consulting for bars and restaurants in New York City.

Raised in southwestern Virginia, I have a soft spot for the legacies of Appalachia and its traditional foodways. I love exploring the culinary traditions of places like New Orleans, the Smoky Mountains, and the backwoods of nearly anywhere.
