Works in Progress
I am creating a podcast. Stay tuned.
I am always writing essays. Currently I am working on one about how we communicate with people who have learning differences, and why how we we communicate with someone who is different than us shouldn't be different at all. Seriously. There's no need for high-pitched voices and general theatrics. You know who demonstrates this best? The new TV series, Speechless. Check out the trailer here.
A year ago I worked on a children's book with artist/illustrator Abigail Swartz. We are currently looking for a publisher.
A portfolio of assignments/projects completed over the years.
Canal House Cooking Vol #3 is a delicious ode to spring.
Sovana Bistro is one of Chester County's top farm-to-table restaurants committed to local flavors. Story written for a project I co-produced: Chester County Dwell was an independent, hyper-local weblog. Not interested in massive or mass produced, our goal was to inspire readers with images and stories featuring eco-friendly lifestyles, which included buying locally as the mainstay of our community.
Bakers at Red Lion
Homemade bread from this local's home.
In celebration of Chester County’s agricultural bounty, I wrote a series of farmer profiles including one on Inverbrook Farm, a 13+-year-old sustainable family farm run in Chester County, Pa.
I wrote a 20-page handbook for The North American Land Trust, a national conservation company that implements a limited development process to conserve large tracts of open space. The copy included case studies incorporating interviews with landowners, attorneys and township managers detailing their relationship with NALT. In 2011 I edited the handbook to produce content for NALT's Website.
