This is but a tiny sampling of the many pieces I have written over the years. Please contact me if you would like to see additional examples of my work.


“7 essential Lisbon photos you can’t leave town without,” Orbitz travel blog

Lisbon is beautiful. Lisbon is chill. Everyone should go to Lisbon.

“What to drink in Italy–Five unexpected liqueurs,” Orbitz travel blog

If you go to Italy, do try to taste a few of these.


“The History of Chicago Couture,” Chicago Public Radio

One of the most fun projects I’ve ever worked on! I did a piece for “Eight Forty-Eight” on a Chicago History Museum exhibit of couture designs owned by prominent Chicagoans and linked it to the growing local fashion scene.


“Not Coming Soon to a Nordstrom Near You,” Chicago Reader

I wrote about the designers behind Creatures of the Wind as they were on the cusp of fame.


Preservationist, or Pest for Short,” Chicago Reader

My first cover story for the Reader, about an Oak Park man who took it upon himself to save and publicize the work of Prairie School architect John Van Bergen and other endangered buildings–but did not always find his efforts to be appreciated.

Another story on an Italian digestivo, or after-dinner liqueur.


“Sole Searching” WWDChicago (PDF)

Profile of a shoe designer who makes eco-friendly sandals. I’m pleased to say she is still in business and doing well in a tough industry.
