Thanks for stopping by. I’m a writer and also the Food Editor at INDY Week, an independent newspaper in the Raleigh-Durham Triangle region. Prior to that, I was a freelance writer, editor, and digital consultant for a number of wellness and lifestyle publications. I’ve written for the Wanderlust Journal, Yoga Journal, NY Yoga+Life magazine, and SONIMA, and was also the managing editor for Astrostyle.com. Before that, I was the yoga editor at mindbodygreen.com. I also spent several years in the newsroom at The New York Times. My first book, The Yoga Almanac, comes out from New Harbinger Publications in 2020.
