I self-identify as a food writer/stylist/photographer & recipe developer.




My editorial work focuses on whole, real food ingredients, usually green and leafy, sometimes kneaded, sweet and sugary--- but always rich with color.


Stylistically, my goal is to capture all that's aesthetically sensual about a food scene -- textures, smells, temperature, and taste, as well as the pure luxury of the in-the-moment eating experience.


During many naturally lit, perfect shoot days, I play a UX designer awash in the blue fluorescent glow of corporate wonderland, though I'm often daydreaming I'm at home cooking with my dogs at my feet and my chickens pecking at the back door. Shrug. Survival skills.


In a former life, I spent a decade slinging drinks at an all-night rock 'n' roll dive. It could explain a lot. Until recently, I've been slinging food and the occasional drink on Instagram. You'll find that hearsay documented here: @paperapron  


I am available for content creation, publications, and product collaborations. I also make a decent lunch date. 

In other not nearly so food-centric news, I am a painter, a potter and a passionate part-time Parisian.


And reading between those lines, not only do I play with food, but I also toy too much with alliteration and am NOT on team Oxford comma. I am a rebel without a pause.
