I have more than 16 years of experience as a writer and editor for major print and online publications, focusing on food, nutrition, and health. Covering these topics was what made me decide to become a nutritionist, and now I'm fortunate to split my time between journalism and nutrition-related work, and even bridge the two fields in my podcast.
I've worked as an editor at several magazines and websites, including Gourmet (2007-2009), CHOW (2006-2007), and Plenty (2004-2007). My freelance writing and editing clients have included Refinery29, The Food Network, Slate, Allrecipes, Buzzfeed, Epicurious, Redbook, Sterling Epicure Publishing, and many more.
I've also edited books including Modernist Cuisine, a six-volume, 2,400-page culinary arts textbook that received numerous awards, including the James Beard for Cookbook of the Year (2012). I recently worked as an editor on the MC team's forthcoming book about the art and science of bread.
