Writer. Foodie. Adventurer.

After more than a decade covering politics for newspapers in Iowa and North Dakota, I am newly navigating the world as a recovering reporter. The high points of my past life are documented in articles and appearances. I am currently working as a communications specialist at Iowa State University and always looking for new experiences. I’m still writing my great American novel, but blogging here in the meantime.

You can find my adventures in cooking here, and my political rants, pop culture musings and rare deep thoughts here. I’m also usually lurking on Twitter or posting pics of my cats on Instagram.

Any questions? Drop me a line.
