TweetWhile there were celebrity chefs in America for years, Top Chef brought them to the national consciousness with their award-winning show.

Tweet A few weeks ago, Sammi and I drove over to Decatur, a hip neighborhood in Atlanta, for me to research an article and to keep us busy. Sammi has been working at a 4 H Center an hour south of town and hasn’t gotten as many hours as she wants, so she spends a [...]
Tweet This month, I lost a place that was very dear to me, a second home of sorts. Theatre in the Square, a community theater in my hometown of Marietta, Georgia, closed its doors after 30 years. I spent four years of my life in their Teen Ensemble, where I studied drama under director Susan [...]
