I am a freelance travel writer with a focus on family, culinary and eco-friendly travel. Based in New York City, I am a senior editor at offMetro.com and a contributing editor at Family Travel Forum. My work has been published in The New York Times, CNN, Budget Travel, Time Out New York, USA TODAY-Go Escape, am New York, Paste Magazine, Vacations and Travel, At Home Tennessee, Mommy Poppins, Taking the Kids, Paste Magazine and Dave’s Travel Corner.

I am a native New Yorker with a globetrotting spirit, and am equally at home sailing on a Maine Windjammer, prowling the streets of Florence or exploring Buddhist temples in Myanmar. I have lived in Rome, Tuscany, Melbourne, Toronto and Los Angeles. I have a knack for languages and speak fluent Italian and Spanish and laughably adequate in French. My graduate studies in Early Childhood Education give me an added understanding of what it takes to travel with kids in tow. I never miss a chance to sample local delicacies, as my love for travel goes hand-in-hand with my love for food and wine.
