  • Carolyn stopped eating red meat when she was 20 years old, and she's cooked nearly every recipe in the Moosewood cookbook since.
  • She's fascinated by how smart technology can enhance healthy diets, inspire plant based eating, build regional food systems, and alleviate food deserts.
  • She's been interviewed on the We Earn Media podcast to help press agents meet the needs of online writers.


Carolyn has had two careers: one as a restaurant and bar manager, and the other as a writer and writing instructor. She applies her lifelong hunger for cookbooks, food magazines, food-themed novels, and behind-the-scenes restaurant feature articles into her writing, and she's published over 1000 articles for CleanTechnica. She's written about the language of menus, what plant based food execs want you to know, the foods that make college kids smile, alternative proteins, and a whole lot more. She's reviewed food books and taste-tested foods from vegan startups and imagined a menu of Tesla Giga Beer selections. Her affiliation with the Media Education Lab has included running three conferences and writing curricula.


Carolyn has a PhD in education from the University of Rhode Island and bachelor's and master's degrees in writing from the University of Connecticut.
