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. 

I also sometimes write for Babson College, Harvard University, Massachusetts General Hospital, and MIT

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.
