A freelance journalist since 1990, I write about travel, food, lifestyle and interesting people with stories to tell. I write regularly for outlets including USAToday/10Best, AAA Traveler, AAA World, Southbound, Philadelphia Inquirer/Daily News, Taste and others. My new book, 100 Things To Do In New Orleans Before You Die, out November 15, 2016, is all about the things I love in New Orleans, feasting and cocktails, music and deeply entrenched local culture and neighborhoods.

My book, The Hunt Guide New Orleans, is an insider's guide to some of the best independently owned restaurants and shops in New Orleans. I've also collaborated with chefs on cookbooks, written and contributed to guidebooks and edited custom pubs for a variety of clients.

I regularly offer my communication and writing skills to non-profits, businesses, PR agencies and hospitality companies. I’m also expert at interviewing the right people and translating their views into snappy, interesting content. If my skills align with your needs, I look forward to working with you.

One thing I believe:

"Years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did ..." Mark Twain
