Palatable Storytelling

My goal is to invite readers to the table with a distinct style of first-person
sensory writing. As someone with a passion for travel and the culinary world,
I hope to push my boundaries and explore new avenues at this intersection.

Below, you will find a collection of my published works for Santa Barbara Life + Style Magazine.
