I'm a journalist based in Paris, focusing on wine and cuisine. My articles about wine and restaurants have appeared in The Financial Times, The New York Times: T-Magazine, and Fantastic Man, among other publications. I began writing NOT DRINKING POISON IN PARIS in 2010 on my lunch breaks while working for a fashion company. The blog mainly covers wine and restaurants in France, with an emphasis on producers and purveyors of natural, organic, and biodynamic wines. 

Before moving to Paris in 2009, I worked as wine director at Nancy Silverton & Mario Batali's Pizzeria Mozza in Los Angeles. Later I was a sommelier at the two chefs' next collaboration, Osteria Mozza. I've since designed wine lists for clients in Los Angeles, Boston, and Paris. I'm presently working on a book about the wines of Beaujolais.
