Me, smiling


I live in Durham, NC with my partner, our son, and our four cats.

We went to Peru in August of 2008, which is where we took the pictures you see here.


I am in the process of obtaining master's degree in economics. Ultimately, I want to use that degree to work with a non-profit or government agency. I'm interested in consumer and firm behavior when it comes to food--whether we're talking about farmers, farmer's markets, or just your local grocery store.


Food and food writing. Travel. Sustainable agriculture. Localism. Animal welfare. Literature. Languages. Story. Folklore and fairy tales. The way the internet is changing how we communicate. Cognitive science. Gardening.
