Hero Profile » About Erin Byers Murray
After 8 years in the far cushier world of online editing and freelance food writing, Erin Byers Murray ditched the home office (and the wardrobe) to join Island Creek Oysters. Somehow, despite a total lack of knowledge about aquaculture or boating, she convinced Skip Bennett to let her join the team as a farm hand to learn the business of bivalves. Despite a constant lack of sleep and a growing number of bruises, she's found her rhythm with the crew and looks forward to watching millions of baby seedlings grow into sweet, plump, juicy 'sters. During her few free hours, she continues to write for publications like Boston magazine, Improper Bostonian, Food & Wine, and Body & Soul.
