  • Annie spent six months in Rome, where she practiced her Italian and wrote about natural wines, supplì, and chocolate fig gelato.
  • She fell in love with baking as a child after friends and family showered her brownies with compliments, asking for her secret. The secret: They were from a mix.
  • She's covered the New York Fancy Food Show, interviewed the team from sustainability pioneer Polyface Farm, and celebrated fairy tale eggplant for DC Life Magazine.


Annie has been writing professionally since 2015. After nearly seven years of writing branded content in New York City, she left the marketing world to return to school for journalism. Though she's covered everything from travel and entertainment to technology and business, her true passion has always been food. An avid home cook and baker, she usually has a new ingredient or culinary challenge on her mind. Her favorite kitchen experiments include baking sourdough, churning mint ice cream, and decoding her mom's brisket recipe.


Annie has a Bachelor of Arts from Colby College and a Master of Science in journalism from Northwestern University.
