I’m a freelance Journalist and Photographer with a focus on food, travel, and entertainment living in New York State. I've written for over 10 different local publications in New York, the Huffington Post, Dame Traveler, Kitchn, Insider, Business Insider, Wine Enthusiast, AAA World Magazine, AAA Northeast, Eater, Cosmopolitan, Times Union, Food52, and Thrillist. I've created recipes for a cookbook released by Sorrento Cheese to promote their brand of Galbani Italian Cheeses. I've judged numerous cooking competitions including the Taste of Buffalo, the National Wing Festival, the Erie County Fair, the Wegmans Chef Throwdown, and the Italian Festival. I created my own travel website called AdventuresAreWaiting.com where I work with various sponsors to promote destinations and adventures to gain experience, and have gone on to write about travel for respected publications like AAA and Thrillist, inspiring others to have adventures around the world!
