I’m currently the food columnist for “The Nervous Breakdown,” a west-coast-based e-zine with a monthly circulation of 65,000.
These are some of the independent food pieces I’ve written.
Purple Reign – an immersion account of playing Professional Banquet Cook for a night, Iron Chef-style. (Published in the 2011 edition of the “Best Food Writing” anthology.)
Whisky Rebellion – on-the-ground coverage of Chicago’s WhiskyFest. Published in the Chicago Journal.
The Old Man And The Space – A memoir of four years of night classes at Columbia College. Published in the literary journal South Loop Review.
Seven Worthy Sins – Vice-based travel suggestions. Published in the Columbia College continuing education student publication.
Roll Call – How it came to pass that I got fat. Published by Intrepid Media, and used as a handout in the weight-loss clinic at the University of Chicago Medical Center.
Veteran Leadership – Advice to men tasked with standing up in a wedding. Out for publication.
