About Me


I’m a writer, jungle rodent connoisseur, and mapgazer. I have written food, travel, and music articles for the San Francisco Chronicle, Travel Channel’s World Hum, BBC Travel, GoNOMAD, Perceptive Travel, the San Diego Reader, and McSweeney’s, among others. My latest book Breakfast for Alligators: Quests, Showdowns, and Revelations in the Americas won a gold medal in the 2017 Independent Publisher Book Awards. My work appears in several anthologies, including The Best Travel Writing Volume 11 (Travelers’ Tales / Solas House), Adventures of a Lifetime: Travel Tales from around the World (World Traveler Press), and Stories of Music Volume 1 (Timbre Press).

I recently co-founded Mel’s Melting Pot, a small-batch sauce and condiment company, with my wife, a chef. Our products integrate flavors and spices we have encountered during our travels.

When I am not traveling, I can be found in my hometown of Queens, New York, usually hovering around the taco vans and souvlaki carts.
