Roanoke for Creative Folk: A City Guide


"Nestled into the heart of the scenic Blue Ridge Mountains, the city of Roanoke, Virginia is poised for a cultural uptick. Once a busy railroad hub, the now-lively downtown, active design culture, friendly folk, and locavore leanings promise a new beginning for the Star City of the South..."

Destinations will include:

Appalachia Press—an old school letterpress and silkscreen shop

Grandin Theatre—Roanoke's last and only locally owned & operated movie house

Taubman Museum

Black Dog Salvage

Roanoke Food Coop

Firefly Fare


My own interests tend towards the connections between people and place, and my affinities for history, agriculture, design, and culture often show through. With that in mind, I'm most interested in writing for design, art, travel, or food publications that have a unique bent (Wilder, Kinfolk, the Etsy blog, Design Sponge come to mind).

Thanks for any feedback!
