Freelance Food Content Creator

My storytelling focuses on the intersection between relatable copy and captivating visuals, with a particular interest in food and family. I believe in the spirit of food and the way it influences our everyday--the human aspect of the people who create it, and the people you share it with. Contributions cover healthy eating for families, recipe development, event highlights, on-location food styling and photography.

A sampling of clients includes Apartment Therapy/The Kitchn, 510 Families, Phoenix New Times, Raising Arizona Kids magazine.
