A Collection of Written Works


Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoy my work for four distinctly different media outlets: WCPO – the ABC-affiliated television station in Cincinnati, Ohio; Polly Magazine – an arts and culture magazine; Movers & Makers – a Cincinnati arts and culture publication; and Our Kitchen Roots – my personal blog. You might notice a common theme across these stories: Food. Well, that’s no accident. Food is a universal connector; it frees us to share the most amazing stories. It also connects the different chapters of my professional life, from my early days in engineering to now, a brand maker through great storytelling.
