What I read

More food blogs than I can count! Favorites-- Pinch of Yum, How Sweet Eats, Inspiralized, The Kitchn. I most recently read A Fork in the Road & Alligator Candy. Danny Meyer's Setting the Table changed my life.

Side projects

I'm mostly working on my copy-writing, content marketing business The 5th Sense. I'm also managing a new publication on Medium called "The Food Marketing Forum."

Ideal team

Coming from a restaurant marketing background, I handle a fast-pace very well. I like honesty served straight-up. A little bit of humor never hurts, either.
