My writing career started in the fashion industry, but there's a common thread between my reporting on the runways and my reporting on the brew house. I get to know the people behind the trend, the beer, the event. I look for intriguing yet under-reported themes from history that inform how we drink or eat or travel today. I strive to tell the stories of underrepresented people in today's craft beer and food and beverage scenes, and keep close watch on how these industries are working toward positive and impactful change. NB: My story on Native American breweries for Thrillist won the NAGBW's second place award for best international/national reporting, 2022.
