Life has always been a bit of an adventure to me and I don’t like to do things halfway, especially writing. My writing career started in the motorcycle industry in 2000 as an Associate Editor for Hot Rod Bikes magazine. I moved over to Hot Bike magazine in 2002 as a staff editor before turning freelance in 2003.

And found my true calling. You couldn’t pay me to go back to an office job.

Freelancing allowed me to explore other options. Until 2010, I worked for various motorcycle and ATV publications, writing stories on custom bikes, tech how-to’s, and interviewing people in the industry. The year 2010 was when I started breaking into culinary writing under food writer and chile expert Dave “The Pope of Peppers” DeWitt. He took me under his mentorship, first having me write articles for fieryfoodsandbarbecuecentral.com and later as Managing Editor for burn-blog.com. Since then, I’ve split my time between the worlds of barbecue and motorcycling as I explore the No Man’s Land in between the two (surprisingly related) subjects.

I’ve learned a lot about barbecue and become a chilehead since I started working for Dave. He’s also helped me start the transition from magazine work to books. I believe my experience in the motorcycle industry translates very well to food writing; both fields are populated with fierce enthusiasts looking for insight and fresh ideas to try. I like to think that I provide that through a mix of personal research, picking the brains of those who know more than I do, and writing in a fun,humorous style. If I don’t enjoy writing something, why would you enjoy reading it?

I like to think of culinary writing as the next big adventure for me and a new phase in my life. I worked in restaurants all through high school and college so I do have some experience working with food in a professional environment. You’ll find examples of my work not just at the websites named above but also on hotbikeweb.com, streetchopperweb.com, baggersmag.com, and motorcyclecruiser.com.
