The Roanoker magazine is the longest continuously published city magazine in Virginia and the premier lifestyle publication for the Roanoke Valley. My recent stories for them include a look at the rise of young farmers, an in-depth piece on local kombucha makers and a quick hit on a subscription service from an herb farm.
I have written many features stories, trend pieces and profiles for SWVA Living, a quarterly, regional magazine published by The Roanoke Times.
Recent profiles include:
A few of my favorite features pieces: A look at what it means to raise heritage poultry. A piece on the world of beekeeping. Shining light on a business that helps hungry hikers. Digging into asparagus as a first fruit of spring. A take on Virginia’s rich heritage of making apple butter. And a how-to on planting fall bulbs.
I have appeared on local TV station WSLS’s Daytime Blue Ridge, cooking Vegetarian Spring Rolls, grain-filled Buddha Bowls, Honey Granola, Brussels Sprouts and Chestnuts, Thai Butternut Squash Soup and three kinds of pesto in their demonstration kitchen.
