I am an explorer with a passion for consuming knowledge and getting lost in research in order to piece together a full, nuanced, and compelling narrative. Human relationships to food have been an enduring interest of mine and continue to hold fascination as I excavate the depths of this elemental part of human existence. Like art, food is a basic form of communication, used as a signifier of cultural allegiance and individual identity. In my work, I want to bring people closer through well-told stories and shared experiences to promote mutual understanding. I do this through well-researched writing, sensitively-planned events, and conscientious, people-centered project management.
