As a freelance writer with an aversion to sitting still, I've contributed to a wide range of publications including Travel + Leisure Southeast Asia, Time Out New York, Edible East End, WorldHum.com, Edible Hudson Valley, the Village Voice, Penthouse, the San Francisco Chronicle, Rails to Trails, and DestinAsian. My articles on craft beer have also appeared in DRAFT, Beer Connoisseur, All About Beer, BeerAdvocate, The New York Times Guide to Essential Knowledge, and the Oxford Companion to Beer. In April 2011, Globe Pequot Press released my first book, Best Hikes Near New York City. GPP also published my second book, Camping New York, in May 2013.
