I tell stories that highlight the astonishing diversity of this city and state.

Job Editor, Writer / Maine Media Collective

Lives In Yarmouth

As the managing editor for Old Port magazine, and a writer for Maine magazine and Maine Home + Design, I am privileged to be able to travel around the state meeting fascinating people and learning about everything from sustainable seafood to design thinking. A well-published journalist and seasoned editor, my career includes varied newspaper and magazine staff positions, both digital and print, as well as freelance work. Before turning to writing and editing, I was a chef and owner of a busy restaurant and catering business. I was also the founding editor of Eater Maine and an online editor at the Portland Press Herald prior to landing my dream job with Maine Media Collective. Because I love to cook, eat, and write about food, I blog with my husband, photographer Ted Axelrod, at Spoon & Shutter.
