I'm Josie and that, above, is Claire. She's a Silverback Persian, and I'm a Slightly Graying Journalist covering food and drink trends, boutique travel destinations, and all things craft/maker culture.
My work has appeared in The New York Times, USA Today, NPR.org, Sunset, 5280 magazine, The Denver Post, and Eater. I write both longform stories and quick content, news pieces and personal essays. Currently I am based in Denver, Colorado.
Prior to moving West, I took a teaching grant in the Mediterranean and spent a few years there eating pork, muddling three languages and once or twice getting into tiffs with the Spanish government. Since that's settled, I've been spending my free time exploring more of the world and completing a master's program in English literature through Middlebury College.
I've also created pop-up dinner series and dabbled in photography; on occasion I have been asked to weigh-in on coffee, food and facial hair competitions; and my latest little project is a newsletter, Cheaper Than Colorado, featuring unique properties for sale.
