  • Jeff is an adventurous eater willing to try just about anything at least once, whether it's haggis or sheep's head.
  • He completed a self-imposed year-long weekly cocktail-making challenge on Instagram in 2023, with an album on vinyl to pair with each drink.
  • His mission is to find the best cup of coffee in every city he visits.


Jeff is a freelance writer based in Richmond, Virginia. He has over 20 years of experience writing art, music, culture, and lifestyle articles. He has written for online and print publications, including Paste, Fodor's, San Diego CityBeat, the San Diego Daily Transcript, and San Diego Magazine, where he previously served as web editor. When not writing about food, and truthfully, even when he is writing about food, he's probably listening to records.
