About Me


To learn about the people, food and culture of the world.


I'm all about supporting and being involved in the local, sustainable food/agriculture movement. I grew up in Berkeley, California and have supported local organic farms my whole life, first helping my mother with her organic garden, then as a chef using local organic products in my kitchens. I love to cook and learn about various cultures and cuisines. Food really connects us all!
I am currently taking a figure drawing class and a philosophy class at Berkeley City College.
