I’ve worked as a full-time freelance writer and content developer since 2005. I write blogs for restaurants and I’m a regular contributor to the Baton Rouge Business Report and 225 Magazine. My work has also appeared in EatingWell Magazine and on the National Public Radio program, On Point. In addition to food, I cover business, quality of life, philanthropy and other issues.
