Writing

 

As an experienced and accomplished writer with extensive marketing experience, I can help you convey your message and tell your story.

Most recently, I told the story of a great American city through its cuisine as a food writer, editor and restaurant critic. As Food & Drink Editor at the San Antonio Express-News, I led the Taste section to first place as Best Newspaper Food Section in our circulation class. You can find where I’m dining or what I’m cooking by following me on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.

My culinary explorations began with rolling flour tortillas when I was a kid and eventually led me to quit my newspaper job while I worked in Milwaukee and open my own restaurant. That lasted about a year.

I have contributed to First We Feast, Epicurious and Eater.com. If you’re looking for a writer who knows food, restaurants and Texas, I know a guy.

Here are some samples of my work:
