About

Based in the coastal town of Madison, Connecticut,  I write stories about people, and how food, recipes, farms and growers create community, connection and shared history. Lately, I write about farmers and growers for The Boston Globe Food & Dining section, including a 6-part series in 2021, “States of Farming,” which looked at BIPOC farmers in New England. 

After I graduated from Sarah Lawrence college, I moved to New York City’s Little Italy and pursued acting while working at corporate temp jobs. Later, I was an assistant director at a performance art gallery in Soho, then spent 10 years as an associate producer in the corporate arena for national meetings, broadcasts, webcasts, and videos.

I returned to my home state of Connecticut in 2010, and soon after began a new chapter as a writer. I love living this close to the saltwater, with easy access to  New York City, Boston, the Berkshires, Connecticut-style lobster rolls, and Pepe's Pizza.
