Hi! Thanks for coming to my website. I’m a Chicago-based food journalist who has also worked in music journalism. These days, I’m the food & kitchen staff writer at VICE’s shopping page, Rec Room, and I contribute to publications like Chicago Magazine and Eater. I’m especially interested in writing about restaurants, cookbooks, and kitchen products, and I run VICE’s monthly cookbook column, “Flavor Zone.” I’ve talked about food with people like T-Pain, Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy, Eric Wareheim, Katie Parla, Abra Berens, Jing Gao (of Fly By Jing), and The Sporkful podcaster Dan Pashman. Before moving to Chicago, I was the staff writer at Sauce Magazine, St. Louis’ primary independent food magazine, for four years.
Please enjoy some of my favorite pieces on the “Selected Works” page, and if you want to talk food, commission writing, tell me about cool kitchenware and cookbooks, or give me pizzeria recommendations, feel free to email me.
