I divide my time between New York City and the lovely Hudson Valley in upstate NY, where I reside in a 170-year-old farmhouse. 

As a  freelance food stylist/recipe developer/editor my passion is to create beautiful and delicious food for magazines, cookbooks, TV and the web. 

I have more than 25 years of experience at the country’s top food and lifestyle magazines, including Gourmet, Martha Stewart Living, Real Simple, Health, Ladies’ Home Journal and Prevention, where I have had the pleasure of working alongside many of the industry’s best chefs, editors, art directors, and stylists.

Additional areas of expertise: testing kitchen equipment and appliances and as a chef instructor teaching children and adults food and nutrition.
