About

Drop me an email at abalagur@gmail.com

Originally from New York, I spent a decade in Minnesota before moving back to the East Coast for grad school.

I earned my bachelor’s in communication and theatre arts at the University of Pennsylvania and my master’s in food studies at Boston University, where my research focused on food history and cultural exchange through food. I’m the managing assistant editor of Food, Culture & Society, an academic food studies journal, and I’ve written freelance for a variety of publications, including The Huffington Post, Chowhound and WGBH.

I also do freelance copywriting—mainly articles, blog posts, websites, press releases and white papers—for a wide range of clients in health care, banking, financial services, higher ed and tech, among other industries.

Over a decade ago, I began doing radio, podcasting and commercial voice overs, which I still do on an ad hoc basis. I record in a tiny professional quality studio at home.

I’m continually on the hunt for the world’s best Bloody Mary, improving my pie art skills and dancing like nobody’s watching, and I like nothing better than researching, shaping and telling a good story.
