I'm Josie, that's Claire. We're both tired this year, but she's mostly napping while I'm busy paying our bills. I am a print and online journalist covering food and drink trends, independent restaurants, all things craft/maker culture and travel & the outdoors.
My work has appeared in The New York Times, USA Today, Sunset, 5280, Eater and The Coloradoan, as well as on NPR.org. I write both longform stories and quick content, news pieces and personal essays. Currently I am based in Denver where I report daily for The Denver Post.
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.
