The building was seamlessly restored, while thoughtfully blending original architectural details with new contemporary elements. I wrote about the design project for Dwell Magazine.

In the latest issue of University of Virginia Magazine I wrote an investigative food history story on the infamous grillswith, a 756-calorie dish involving two grilled doughnuts and a scoop of ice cream that originated from the University Diner and still exists at various restaurants in Charlottesville today. The greasy dish was known as a hangover cure and a good way to soak up booze after a night of gallivanting. Read the story here.
My favorite thing about writing for R•Home Mag is getting to spend time with inspiring people in Richmond. In the May-June issue I had the pleasure of writing the cover story on Alison Barber’s vibrant Ginter Park home — the fabulous interiors by the talented interior designer Jennifer Stoner. And for my “Favorites” column, I visited with jewelry designer Jay Sharpe to learn about his evolution as an artist and take a look at the pieces of art that inspire him and fill his house with joy.
