Hi, it’s been a minute.


So here we are.

After an unbelievably fulfilling summer spent with my two young daughters, I’m looking to what comes next.

I would love “whats next” to be a fully formed idea, neatly wrapped with a bow on top. That’s not where I am. Not yet.

So I’m focusing on what I know I do best: compiling and sharing relevant information about the future of the restaurant business. It’s called Expedite and it’s a weekly newsletter providing smart restaurants + technology + culture content like I’ve done for the past six+ years.

This isn’t the be-all, end-all project I’ve tried for weeks to define. But it is the first step toward reinstating an indispensable resource for those who care about the future of the restaurant business — or anyone who loves restaurants and technology as much as I do.

Here’s to what comes next, to experimentation, iteration, and embracing unknown outcomes. SUBSCRIBE HERE to get the latest in your inbox every week. (Or so.)
