about

Hi! I’m Bryn, and I’m an independent journalist and content creator focused on food, wellness and design.

I write for publications, creative firms and brands, telling mouthwatering stories about people, projects and products. I write about things that feed and sustain body and soul. [And, for the right meal, I’d write for food in a literal sense.]

I am the author of “The Findlay Market Cookbook” (Farm Fresh Books, 2014) and the editor of Edible Ohio Valley, a quarterly magazine that celebrates local food, season by season.

In addition, I develop results-oriented marketing communications (both B2B and B2C) for brands and organizations including HOW Design Live, Kroger, Meijer and the Produce Marketing Association. I write about food and the people who produce it for publications including Cincinnati Magazine and Organic Gardening. And I collaborate with creative agencies like Hybrid Design and Enrich Creative. Find a tasting menu of my work in my portfolio. And find out how I can help you.

Writing about food, wellness and creativity is the new chapter in a successful 20+ year gig in publishing. I’ve spent my media career in magazine journalism, much of it as the editor-in-chief and brand leader for HOW, a multi-platform brand serving graphic designers and creative professionals.

In addition to my client work, I write the Midwest-based food blog writes4food, which shares recipes and kitchen wisdom and explores regional foods and producers. You can also find me on Facebook and on Twitter @writes4food. I’m a member of the International Association of Culinary Professionals, which has nominated my work as a finalist in the Bert Greene Awards for culinary writing.

My husband, Rob, and I are avid cooks, wine lovers and advocates for the local food community. We’re regular farmer’s market shoppers and, in season, we enjoy produce from our small vegetable garden. I love homemade buttersummer tomatoes and orange chocolate-chip muffins.
