gorgeous words

Degrees in English and the Culinary Arts (and the requisite experience following each) made choosing a career as a food writer a natural one. I am a regular contributor to Edible Portland and culinate.com. My writing has also been featured in Fine Cooking magazine, the Oregonian FoodDay section, Imbibe magazine, on foodell.com, and in several books including The Grand Central Baking Book (Ten Speed Press, 2009) and The Chefs Collaborative Cookbook (The Taunton Press, 2013). In early 2015, Sasquatch Books will publish my cookbook on lemons, including 50 recipes for sweet, savory and sipped items featuring the citrus.

Behind every mouthwatering image of food is a stylist who has considered, planned, created and perfected it for the camera. As a stylist, my assignments have included preparing food and drink for print media (magazines, newspapers), cookbooks and advertising.

For me, food styling is a career that offers creative challenges, variety and the joyful opportunity to create and then play with my food.
