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).
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.
Being a stay-at-home mom is a tough enough job in itself, but these Lowcountry women don’t stop there. They’ve each started successful companies that allow them to bring home the bacon from the comfort of their homes. Read their inspiring stories in the Post & Courier.
Ever wonder what goes into planning a menu? I talked to three chefs at three different stages in the process. Read this and you’re guaranteed to look at things differently next time you go out to eat.
Not long after leaving Charleston to move to Boston, I wrote the cover story for the Charleston City Paper about Charleston comics who have moved on to new places themselves.

One of my favorite issues to put together is City Paper’s annual Style Issue, which coincides with Charleston Fashion Week. I like to use the issue to highlight local stylish people, mixing it up with a fun theme every year. This time around, I decided to go with a Senior Superlatives sort of approach — “Class Clown,” “Best Hair,” “Most Dramatic.” Check out the full package here.
