She's been published by Eataly Chicago, The Shops at North Bridge, Food52, Budapest Local, MapQuest Travel, Eat Your World and Only in Illinois. Stephanie always has her passport handy, a voracious appetite (for both food and writing), and Strunk & White on her bookshelf.

Travel Photography

I've traisped along the English countryside, crept through the Wonderland-esque catacombs of Malta and Napoli, driven an ATV around the island of Gozo, rock climbed near the Blue Grotto, danced at Sziget Festival, eaten gelato for lunch (multiple times) and captured these images along the way. 

 

Let's Work Together!

While my last name might not be Kerouac, I'm always ready to pen the next great "American" story for you. Whether you want me to follow in Hemingway's European footsteps, find the next F. Scott Fitzgerald-approved cocktail lounge or partake in Hunter S. Thompson-esque antics (okay, maybe that's a bit too far), I'm up for the challenge. I have style, I have humor, I have a healthy obsession with grammar and not all my pop culture references are about old writers (unless you want them to be).
