  • Carly has written professionally for ten years at creative agencies, most recently as a copywriter and editorial manager for a plethora of well-known food and beverage brands including Nestle, CPK, Stouffer's, Chameleon Coffee, and Anheuser-Busch.
  • She's currently a freelance content writer for online food and travel publications, specializing in short-form news articles, listicles, and long-form features.
  • Carly is an avid food lover, restaurant reviewer, recipe creator, and Cookbook Club founder. She's maybe a little too passionate about all things food, and loves to share that joy with others through her writing.


Having worked in digital marketing for the past ten years, Carly has developed and written content for everything from brand manifestos and internal communications to social media and influencer campaigns. Some of her favorite clients have been DiGiorno, Marriott Hotels, and Mickey Mouse. She's blessed to be able to combine the thing she's good at -- writing -- with the thing she loves the most -- food. She's delighted to bring you news, stories, and discoveries as a member of the Daily Meal team. Based in Los Angeles, her kitchen is chock-full of cookbooks and food puns, and the ongoing list of local restaurants to try in her Notes App is getting a little ridiculous. Also, she can outeat any one of you.


Carly studied at Pepperdine University, receiving a Bachelor's Degree in Telecommunications and graduating magna cum laude in 2011.
