My fascination with food began at age 5 with the discovery of artichokes and pomegranates. I’ve been enamored with the beauty & mystery of food ever since.
As an apprentice with Elizabeth Falkner, I was inspired to formalize my pastry education. Working with talented chefs Traci des Jardins, Cat Cora, Michael Recchiuti and Daniel Patterson encouraged me to pursue a career in food styling. I brought all of my professional skills to the premiere season of Bravo TV’s Top Chef, as Culinary Producer. A few years later, I was invited to compete in the first-ever Food Network Challenge for food stylists (and won!)
Lucky me, I’m based in San Francisco & beautiful Sonoma wine country. I love to travel and work has taken me to adventures in places like Sicily, Mexico, New Zealand and France. I enjoy problem solving and bring my enthusiasm for raw ingredients and focus on fresh, modern food to a broad range of projects, including advertising, packaging, editorial, catalog, motion and social media. I’m always ready for adventure and available for travel.
