I’m a writer living in Tucson, Arizona, where I work as the editor of Edible Baja Arizona, a local food magazine serving Tucson and the borderlands. I’m also the author of Unprocessed: My City-Dwelling Year of Reclaiming Real Food (William Morrow/HarperCollins 2015) a memoir of my year-long journey of eating only whole, unprocessed foods, intertwined with a journalistic exploration of what “unprocessed” really means, why it matters, and how to afford it.
My writing has won awards, from the Arizona Press Club, Edible Communities, and the Pima County Public Library, among others, and is featured in Best Food Writing 2015 (Da Capo Press). I’m a regular contributor to Los Angeles Times, and my articles and essays have appeared in The Washington Post, Orion Magazine, High Country News, The Bellevue Literary Review, and Gulf Coast.
I serve on the leadership council of the Pima Country Food Alliance and I’ve worked with the University of Arizona’s Southwest Center to promote food access and justice.
I hold an MFA in Creative Writing nonfiction from the University of Arizona, and teach as an adjunct lecturer in the UA’s school of journalism.
I run, hike, travel—I speak Spanish and Portuguese—and love breakfast and chocolate chip cookies. I’m represented by the amazing Mackenzie Brady at the Stuart Krichevsky Literary Agency.
