"Here’s to doing what you love, supporting your local community, and keeping print alive."
This past year I struggled with juggling two of my main loves- which also happen to be two of my professions of choice: photography & food.
I was offered the food industry job of a lifetime that I am eternally grateful for and adore, but my schedule has become increasingly strict. It’s a strange thing for me to be unable to take weeks off at a time on whim to travel the world, but at the same time I recognize the need for me to experience such a thing. Yet in my eternal quest to combine all my passions I was able to find a wonderful up-and-coming publication to help me along the way, EdibleDC.
It took some steady emails, tweets and “liking” to make things happen, but eventually I was given my first assignment for the early stages of the print publication. Now, rounding out 2014, I’ve gained enough trust to be assigned with writing & photographing a feature.
It feels good to have consistent work in a field I love. It feels even better that it involves highlighting local food, farm, and food bank organizations.
