I’m a journalist based in Boston.
I write about food, lifestyle, and culture for The Boston Globe, and I’m a contributing editor at Boston magazine, where I’ve overseen marquee issues like Best Schools and Best Places to Live. I also work with select corporate and university clients on editorial projects involving health, science, and technology. I speak frequently about food, mental health, and writing.
I began my career in Washington, DC, as a production assistant at NBC National News, where I tracked Gary Condit’s every move, hung up on Tom Brokaw (thrice), and made the fax machine hiss.
I later worked at The New Republic magazine and New York magazine’s Grub Street. My writing has been published in The New York Times, The Washington Post, Architectural Digest, Better Homes & Gardens, Bon Appetít, Elle, Roads & Kingdoms, Serious Eats, Time, Women’s Health, Washingtonian, and more.
I also co-authored the Oprah-approved book Size Matters: The Hard Facts About the Male Anatomy That Every Woman Should Know, which somehow didn’t ruin my marriage.
When I’m not prowling the city for dim sum and tacos, I’m hard at work on a murder mystery set in the suburbs.
