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 and recipes
for print and online publications, including The Washington Post, Real Simple, Martha Stewart Living, and dozens of other websites, brands,
apps, and authors.
And, in my spare moments, I've taught yoga, which may seem to have nothing to do with editing and writing. Yet I understand them each to be a chance to quiet the noise and distill everything into its simplest essence...and to coax others to do the same by experiencing things from a somewhat different perspective. By making things previously unimagined seem a little—or a lot—more accessible. I'm currently doing exactly that by working with insightful and talented writers and teachers as a senior editor at Yoga Journal.
I bring to each assignment and class some measure of practical and aspirational. 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. And I attempt to accomplish what I do with a lot of awareness for its intended audience as well as some measure of originality and grace. Although I'll let you determine that for yourself.
Or, if you're the sort who care for the opinions of others, my writing and editing has been featured on NPR's Thanksgiving Morning Edition as well as Wall Street Journal Asia. My discernment in the kitchen and at the keyboard were included in The Best American Recipes and The Best Food Writing and I've repeatedly been asked to serve as a judge for The James Beard Cookbook Awards. Perhaps most tellingly, the website I curated was referred to by The New York Times reporter Kim Severson as, "The only source I trust besides The Times."
