I founded the food blog broiledgrapefruit.com to share what I've learned in my work as a food writer and culinary professional. My continued interest in old cookbooks and their recipes inspired me to write The Little Vegan Dessert Cookbook, composed of carefully curated vintage recipes for the plant-based diet. The book which features an Introduction by multiple James Beard Award Recipient Tom Douglas, is currently represented by Fine Print Literary Management.

After earning my certification from the Natural Gourmet Institute’s Chef’s Training Program in New York City, I tasted and experimented with whole-foods cooking enough to notice a real difference in the way I felt—so much so that I got hooked on learning all I could about health-supportive foods, including working in commercial kitchens and catering before eventually focusing on writing and creating recipes of my own.
