new Culture intern
My love of cheese began with my childhood in Vermont. Later it was fueled by the discovery of squeaky cheese curds while I was at Beloit College in Wisconsin — who knew orange, fried cheese morsels could be so delicious? And most recently my love of cheese was cemented while I was living in Chicago working at the Green City Farmers Market selling Potter’s Crackers. Cheese and I have a history together and I couldn’t be happier than to be involved with culture as an editorial web intern.
I’m living in Boston now working towards my M.A. in Publishing & Writing from Emerson College and looking forward to combining my interest in artisan cheese with magazine publishing. I must admit I’ve never made my own cheese — although trying my hand at a fresh ricotta is on my list — but I did study abroad in Mongolia where I milked a camel, goat, sheep, horse, yak, and cow, so I hope that gives me some clout in the dairy world.
