For 15 years, he was an award-winning food editor, writer and nationally published Nibbles food columnist for the Daily Camera, followed by eight years as the dining critic and columnist of the Rocky Mountain News. He was also the executive director of the America Pie Council, author of Denver Dines ( a restaurant guide book), and judge for the James Beard Foundation awards. His writing has appeared in the Washington Post, USA Today, Food Network Magazine, Town & Country, New York Times, San Jose Mercury News, St. Paul Pioneer Press, Miami Herald, Chicago Tribune, and many other publications.
