Growing up, I always knew I wanted to be a writer — specifically a travel writer. I think a lot of young people have that dream, but like a lot of people, I’ve found myself writing about everything but travel over the years. So it feels like a special treat when I get to write about my adventures abroad. This recent article in Paste looks at one of my favorite cities in the world, Lisbon. Between its distinctively strong coffee, bottles of crisp vinho verde, and sticky sweet ginjinha, I literally drank my way through the city — and I’ll teach you how to do the same.
It’s been nearly two years since I left Charleston, but I still have a soft spot for the city — and I’m still pitching stories about it. For this Draft Magazine article, I wrote about some of the Holy City’s best beer destinations, including Closed for Business (pictured above).
Long before I moved to Richmond, I knew I wanted to write for Richmond Magazine. It’s a beautiful publication and a great resource for anyone who lives in the city. So I was excited to get my first story published in the magazine in January, and I’ve been contributing every month since. The photo above is from my article on shopping with chefs, where I tagged along with chefs to find out how they buy groceries. I’ve also written about chefs using winter citrus and a wacky new place called GWARbar.

Distilleries are popping up all over Charleston. Serial entrepreneur Scott Blackwell brings vodka, rum, and sorghum whiskey to the scene with High Wire Distilling Co. Here’s the story in Charleston magazine.
