My name is Mike. I know food.
I have a master's in food studies and certificates in THE culinary arts, baking arts, wine, and cheese. I study, write about, make, and eat food.
I currently work for a Chicago-based foodservice market research firm.
Nice to meet you.
I'm passionate about food because preparing and enjoying a meal is an easy way to be social, creative, and happy on a daily basis.
Let me tell you a little bit about myself and how I can put my skills to work for you.
From my undergraduate degree in magazine journalism to jobs in politics and copywriting, writing has always been a passion.
I have written articles, blog posts, recipes, press releases, SEO-optimized web marketing copy, ad copy, speeches, scholarly/research papers, and e-newsletters.
Strong, vibrant images and logic-driven graphic design are essential if you want to get your point across. Creative vision and a clean, thoughtful identity complete the package.
A heaping bowl of rich, steamy, fall-off-the-bone short ribs. Platters of sweet, cocoa-dusted sugar cookies. When it comes to food, show, don't tell.
