I am a Philadelphia-based freelance journalist and sleuth who loves a good story.
 

My favorite stories are about people and places, and usually include history, architecture, art, and food. 

From listicles and maps to reported longform articles, my work has appeared online on Artsy, The Forward, Curbed Philly, EaterNext City, The Philadelphia Citizen, PhillyVoice, and more. My writing has appeared in print in Edible Philly, TimeOut Philadelphia and GRID Magazine.

I also provide writing and research services to cultural and arts organizations, and translate a wide range of materials (Hebrew to English).
