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.

Getting a Taste of Richmond’s Food Scene

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.
