“Brave New Palate” is a portfolio of my published writing. It is also my personal wine and food blog. I have a special section where I post write-ups of visits to natural winemakers.
Who are you?
I’m a journalist and writer, and the editor/co-founder of Terre Magazine. After living in New York for nine years, I now spend time in Europe and Australia.
Who do you write for?
My articles, found in U.S. magazines such as Wine & Spirits and websites such as PUNCH, reach a wide range of audiences–both those who are curious about wine and food, and industry professionals. See here for an always-expanding list of my recent articles in consumer and trade magazines and websites. I also occasionally write original content on my own blog. I champion naturally-working winemakers, innovative and passionate chefs and sommeliers, and big questions.
Where did you get trained to write about wine and food?
By consuming and selling it, mostly. I worked as a daytime server at Reynard, then transitioned to retail and worked for 8 months at Uva Wines, both in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Meanwhile, I went to a lot of industry tastings and asked questions, and then started doing journalism.
Do you accept wine / spirit samples?
Not at the moment, thank you.
