Family & Friends; Books & the Beach; Cooking and Culture.

These are some of my major interests, fueled by an insatiable wanderlust and curiousity. Feel extraordinarily lucky to have found a career that lets me explore all of these passions in the pursuit of a good story.

Have always worked in the media and with facinating topics: from early days publicizing new fiction at Random House and art exhibitions at the Metropolitan Museum to years working in documentary films at A&E Television and The History Channel.

Now am writing articles on culture and health/wellness and developing book and documentary ideas.
