When you’re not fishing, what are you doing?
Posted On July 23, 2021
When I’m not fishing I am writing about food, technology, and the natural world.
You might not know that I am a food writer.
I was born and raised in New Jersey, but I came to love the Garden State so much that I moved there in 2004.
I was inspired by the local food scene and was drawn to the culture and history of New Jersey.
I worked as a reporter at The Associated Press for many years before deciding to move back to New Jersey and write for my own publication.
During my time there, I began to explore the world of natural history, exploring and documenting some of the most exciting and unique ecosystems on Earth.
In the process, I discovered a lot of fascinating things about the world and its wildlife, including: A fascinating history of fish in New York Harbor and beyond.
How fish are farmed and raised on farms in many places around the world.
Why fish eat the way they do and why they evolved to eat what they do.
A rich and diverse natural history of freshwater wetlands and rivers.
The many types of waterfowl that migrate in the region, including migrating gulls and shorebirds.
Wildlife biologists working to understand how the animals live in the wild, what makes them tick and what they need in the water.
In addition to writing for my new publication, I have written a book called The Garden State: The Science of Life in the Garden, about my journey to write the book.
