Food & Beverage Writer
For a guy who likes to eat as much as I do, writing about food is kind of a dream gig. But it's the stories of the people behind the food -- farmers, pickers, packers, servers, entrepreneurs -- that truly fill me up. I regularly write about food politics for CivilEats.com, and my food features have been featured in Boston Magazine, Edible Boston, and online at TakePart.com, Deadspin, and elsewhere. I even had a story anthologized in Best Food Writing 2011!
A story is rarely what it appears to be on the surface. This is where thorough, incisive reporters remain crucial to news writing that is truthful and that will facilitate civil dialogue. We take a timely story and look at it from all sides, simplifying complex ideas and moving the conversation forward in the public sphere. Whether it relates to the health impacts of urban noise, the politics of BYOB restaurants, or a teen murderer neglected by the social service agency responsible for his care, news readers deserve a balanced, exhaustive, and interesting portrayal of the news happening around them and around the world.
In today's Web-based marketplace, companies that stand out from the crowd offer superior and informative content to their current and prospective customers. Companies that aren't blogging are missing an opportunity to gain rapport with consumers through real-world knowledge while introducing their product to the people who need it most. In the last two years, I have written or edited blogs for a tech venture capital firm, a travel startup, and a neighborhood-based real estate company and contributed regularly to a leading food politics site.
You’re looking for a seasoned professional who can put into a few, carefully selected words the message of your campaign. Put me to work crafting marketing copy for an ad campaign, postcard, brochure, billboard, or website that will turn casual passers by into hot leads. A striking photo draws the eye, but the right word or words inspire action.
