Writing on Food, Culture and Plant Medicines

I began my writing career rather by “accident” following culinary school. Along with some busy and productive years at Bay Area Citysearch, I wrote numerous reviews and features on the San Francisco, Portland, and Pacific NW food scenes for The OregonianSF ChroniclePortland Monthly, and many others

The cannabis part is interesting. Since about 2015, I’ve written a great deal of copy (you can find this on the copy writing page).

While I’m confident that cannabis can treat many chronic conditions more safely and effectively than first-line pharmaceuticals, I find that I have little interest in using it myself, other than as a sleep aid. But the shift from illicit drug to medical miracle worker has been fascinating to observe, and hopefully in some small way to shape.
