Welcome! I am a teacher, scholar, and mediamaker specializing in food and media networks.
In my scholarship, I draw upon ethnographic research from working on farms, in processing facilities, in restaurants, and in the food media industry to advance understanding of our culinary landscape and empower people to create the food communities they believe in.
In the classroom, my students use food and food media as a lens through which to critically explore culture and value-production.
My work encompasses peer-reviewed critical analyses, popular writing, and audio and visual multi-media projects that work to unite institution and community.
But most of all, I love food, people, and the outdoors, and passionate about leading a life filled with all three!
