My name is Chris, and I'm a writer from outside Philly. I have written about foraging in the Rocky Mountains and working on farms and vineyards in Italy, about experimental Mexican barbecue and an old future city, about hunting with Apaches and the world’s best pizza.

My goal is to tell stories using deep reporting, vivid scenes, and novel techniques. Writing from across borders and time shapes my work.

These days, I’m food critic at Phoenix New Times and take on other writing projects. My focus in 2019, beyond writing reviews, is writing longform features. I write a column called Sonoran Arcana, a series of forays into the arid wilds and culinary unknown to spotlight an emerging Arizonan cuisine. I have a few other stories on tap. Most will be reported out in the wild.

Stay tuned for more. Hope you enjoy a story or two now.
