I would describe myself as a free spirit who engages in the arts of writing and editing, caretaking my garden, delving into the culinary world, and traveling to find the true artisans of this world to share their stories.
I began my journey into the world of writing while documenting all my incredible travel adventures at an early age. My mom would give me a tiny journal for each trip, and encourage me to write down my thoughts and describe my surroundings. The combination of travel and documenting my experiences stuck and I have been hooked ever since.
An interlude at La Varenne cooking school in Paris launched my appetite for food writing and soon the cook in me emerged, which lead to positions as a pastry chef and caterer, and to later write recipes for newspapers and magazines. I even interviewed Julia Child!
On most days you will find me tending to my Mediterranean garden complete with pomegranate and fig trees. I also enjoy walking the beach with my sweet dog, Desi, and discovering yet another cookbook or mystery to read.
With a certificate from UCSD’s Copyediting program, I am well-equipped to copyedit the topics that are my passions. I would be honored to have you as a client!

Alexis' job as a curator for an art museum in San Francisco takes a turn when she is suddenly uprooted and sent back in time to 440 BC, Girgento, Sicily, a flourishing and emerging new Mediterranean city on the southern coast. Tackling her new role as the gardeness of the famed Kolymbethra gardens comes with a price and she must depend on her new friends and the goddess Demeter to survive. Deceit, betrayal, and kidnapping were not what she planned on but she must face her fears and learn to believe in herself. Torn between her old life and this ancient, less-complicated world, Alexis must chose her fate. Or will it be decided for her?
