My most recent blog is now a book from Workman Publishing. Take a look: willitwaffle.com.


Work as a writer and editor has taken me from Chicago to Buenos Aires to Tokyo and back again. Along the way, I've worked for two major metropolitan newspapers and an heirloom apple orchard. I am now based in Montreal and am authorized to work in both the United States and Canada.

As a writer, I've covered ramen for the Washington Post, sandwiches for the Chicago Tribune, ice cream for the Los Angeles Times and crime for the Associated Press.

As an editor, I've worked on breaking news stories and long-form feature articles. Most recently, I was a digital news editor for ChicagoTribune.com, where I shared responsibility for deciding the content of the home page, optimizing SEO and meeting site traffic goals.
