I'm a freelance journalist based in Lawrence, KS. I'm often covering food, drink and the hospitality industry, but my range of work also includes health, beauty, horticulture and more. 

Look for my Bar Kit and Classic Comfort Food series' in The Daily Beast's Half Full, or check out my Midwestern city wine guides, historical deep dives, and more on Wine Enthusiast. My work can also be found in Thrillist, Vinepair, PUNCH, Mother Earth News, and Women's Health, among others. I'm also a fact-checker for Wine Enthusiast and have served as a spirits judge for the American Craft Spirits Association and contributed entries to The Oxford Companion to Spirits and Cocktails (out now!).

When not writing or checking facts, you can find me enthusiastically pulling weeds in my backyard, cuddling a cat, devouring a good mystery novel, and working toward my Horticultural Therapist certification through the New York Botanical Garden.
