You may not recognize my name, although chances are you’re familiar with my work. During the last two decades, I've written, edited or otherwise refined hundreds of lifestyle features, essays, reviews, social media approaches, and more for print and online publications including Yoga Journal, Outside, The Washington Post, Real Simple, Martha Stewart Living, and other organizations, brands, and individuals.
Or maybe you've taken yoga class with me.
Editing, writing, and teaching aren't that dissimilar. They each afford a chance to be quiet enough to distill everything into its simplest truth. From that place, you can share essential and relatable stories, concepts, lessons, questions, and truths.
In everything, I meld the practical and aspirational to make the previously unimagined seem a little—or a lot—more accessible. And I try to do so with some measure of originality, grace, and humor.
My perspective has been shaped by the crazily talented yoga teachers, editors, writers, photographers, art directors and consumer
marketing teams with whom I've worked
and studied over the years. This happens through brand awareness, market research, tons of analytics, editorial instinct, and an awareness of the basic human needs to feel seen, heard, and understood.
For those who care about the opinion of others, my reporting, writing and editing have been featured on the front page of Wall Street Journal Asia and NPR's Thanksgiving Morning Edition. My discernment at the keyboard and in the kitchen were included in The Best Food Writing and The Best American Recipes. I've repeatedly judged The James Beard Cookbook Awards. I've been sought after by award-winning custom media and fledgling apps. And the recipe website I curated was once referred to by The New York Times reporter Kim Severson as "The only source I trust besides The Times."
