A strong English student and an absolutely atrocious math student, I exited high school with a love for reading, writing and the Travel and Living Channel. University was a terrifying thought because unlike my friends who wanted to be lawyers and doctors, I had no such plan.
It was only one night, when a family friend said, completely non-sequitorially that he saw me as a journalist, did I consider the path. And well, he was right.
After some years juggling day jobs and working as a feature writer for a now defunct newspaper, writing about food and culture, I pursued writing full time, becoming a publicist, and a freelance writer on the side. Along with my pottery, I'd like to make food and travel writing my full time job, so if you have a story to tell, let me tell it!
I have been facinated with food and food history from a young age. Growing up in a ethnographically specific home in a foreign country, I saw the world through the international foods around me.
From fast breaking at ramadan to large Indian weddings to impromptu parties at campgrounds in Italy, I experienced the world primarily through food and its ability to bring people together, regardless of race, religion or creed.
I write about food and travel from the perspective of a young, minority, immigrant woman and the unique way I experience it plays heavily into my writing.
