I'm a freelance food, drink, and travel writer and editor based in Lawrence, KS. I write various columns for The Daily Beast's Half Full, including Bar Kit, Day in the Life and Classic Comfort Food. My work has also appeared in Wine Enthusiast, Thrillist, Supercall, Distiller, Vinepair, PUNCH, and WhereTraveler, among others. I've served as a judge for the American Craft Spirits Association and review spirits for Distiller.com. My camera roll includes far too many photos of orchids, cats and pot stills.
