About me

I'm a Boston-based food, travel and culture writer with a master's in food studies from BU (I'm also managing assistant editor of the academic journal "Food, Society & Culture"). I travel internationally for my day job at a major university, and I also do copywriting on the side. I most enjoy telling stories about food history and cultural exchange through food around the world.
