Musing about chocolate as it relates to cooking, travel, society, pleasure, pain, and other things
I'm a chocolate enthusiast. I'm also an itinerant traveler, a lover of literature, and a native New Yorker. I've been a movie reviewer, a reproductive health researcher, and an independent bookstore owner. My writing has appeared in the magazines Budget Travel, Travel + Leisure, and Time Out New York, on the websites the Smart Set and Culinate, and in literary magazines such as Tin House, Fourth Genre, and the North American Review. I also teach writing and most enjoy classes that are inventive and provocative; I hope that my students find the classes to be inventive, provocative, and enjoyable, too.
