  • They have spent the past few years traversing NYC and (literally) tasting the marrow of the city's legendary food scene. (Lou Reed was right: There probably is a part of Heaven reserved for Brooklyn poets.)


Autumn has been writing for nearly a decade, covering topics from sustainability to Mahayana Buddhism and Shakespeare adaptations. She crafted cocktails at the renowned Bar Cento in Cleveland and aided in the establishment's comprehensive rebrand.
