When Larissa left San Francisco, it was to follow her ambition of becoming a writer. This was 2011. She lived on the Lower East Side, biked and walked everywhere, earned an MFA in nonfiction from The New School, and, like all writers, wondered how to pay the bills.
It wasn’t until she blended her two pasts—food plus tech—covering, writing on the promise of fake eggs, the potential of peas, and how artificial intelligence saved a winery. Her work has appeared in The New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, Wired, Time, Bloomberg Businessweek, Insider, and many more publications. These days you can find her in Northern California where she burns off calories by hiking and biking.
