Writer. Editor. Eater. Restaurant critic for San Diego Magazine. I wrote and hosted the TV series Crave on Food Network. I have, in the past, been hired to bring down the literary reputation of Surfer, Rolling Stone, SPIN, Mojo and Paper. My first book was supposed to lead to much laughing and crying on Oprah’s furniture. She’s probably kicking herself. (Note: I hated the title and the cover of the book. I fought for, and lost, the right to call it Son of a Butch.)
I’m currently working on my second book—the first about what we put in our mouths.
