In my day job, I write, edit and produce digital content for ABC News' magazine shows, "Nightline", "20/20" and primetime specials. But in my spare time, I scour for tasty bites in the mecca of amazing food, New York City, and I hunt for dishes to create at home. My kitchen is small, but my foodie dreams are big.

Cooking is my therapy.

And once upon a time, I was an excellent tennis player.

I originally hail from a small town on Maryland's Eastern Shore -- that jumbo lump in your Maryland crab cake was likely harvested down the road from where I grew up -- and country music always brings me home.
