Pot! Weed! MaryJane! Ganja! You name, here is the deal on how to consume it.
As of last August I have been in New York City for nine years. I was born in Manhattan, Kansas, and as my mother likes to say, “You started in the little apple and now live in the big apple.” Of course my first few months would have a relation to food! Lucky for me, my time in Kansas was short, 11 months, and then my family moved to Denver, where I lived until the age of 17. From there I moved on to Berkeley, California with a head of bright blue hair and a job at a bakery.
Now, after traveling most of North America in my little 82' Subaru sedan and a backpack fueled stint in Europe, I live in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn. In between freelance writing gigs and tending bar, I find time to cook up a storm--I love food! Which is one of the main subjects I write about, as well as other arts and culture oriented stories, and this wonderful city has no lack of that! I have written for New York Magazine's Grub Street,Serious Eats, The Daily News, Time Out New York, The New York Press, MSNBC, The Brooklyn Rail, Zagat, and Edible Brooklyn.
In December 2008 I received my M.A. from the City University Graduate School of Journalism and am currently freelancing. However, I am seeking more adventure and greater stories, hoping one day to travel the world and write about the cultures I see and the food I eat. No matter where I am, I am eager to learn and grow in all experiences
