About Me



I’m a writer, originally from the U.S., now living in South Australia. Perhaps you’ve heard of Pipette Magazinethe independent print magazine about natural wines, which I founded in 2017. (I also make natural wine under the label Persephone Wines, which you may have enjoyed in the U.S., Korea, or Australia.)

Currently, I am at work on a memoir about natural wine writing and making, for Hachette Books (2021). Meanwhile, I continue publishing Pipette Magazine, which you can order online or find at brick-and-mortar stockists around the globe.

For a long time, I was a freelance writer. My articles were found in U.S. print magazines such as Imbibe and Wine & Spirits and websites such as Vogue.com, VinePair, and PUNCH.

A few early examples I remain fond of:

Esquire: Everything You Need to Know About the Wine World’s Next Big Thing

Vogue: You’re Drinking Wine All Wrong, Says This Self-Professed ‘Crazy French Woman'”

Eater: Andrea Calek Is A Lazy Bum, And That’s Why His Wines Are So Good

Eater: How Brianne Day Is Leading The Next Generation Of Natural Oregon Winemakers

Food Republic: Meet Abe Schoener, The Wine World’s Enigmatic Cult Hero

One thought on “About Me

  • Thank you for your article in The Nation. There are many of us out here in other cities, working day jobs, who are totally supporting the Occupy Movement, even though we can’t be there. i found your article extremely moving, as I have since the day the first Occupy happened, and then spread around the globe. It’s amazing, really…and tremendously heartening.
