I'm a writer at Eater New York, where I report on restaurant and hospitality industry news. Over the last two years, I have reported features on flour tortillas and finance bros, written restaurant openings about baijiu shots and mama's boys, and conducted longform investigations into some of the city's most powerful restaurateurs. You can find my latest work here.
I found my way to New York City by way of Orange County, hometown of the French fry-filled California burrito and this Chicano journalist. I attended Oberlin College with the intention of studying fiction writing, before I realized I was much better at documenting other peoples' stories than dreaming up my own.
Since graduating, my work has been featured in Eater, New York Magazine, the Atlantic, and WNYC. Much of what I write is about what I eat, a borderline unmanageable list of restaurants and bars that I update periodically (last updated April 2022):
