I will be traveling over the next year to learn how to cook Peruvian, Oaxacan, and Southeast Asian cuisines. This summer I threw two dinner parties a week in my San Francisco apartment where I would pick a new theme each time, write a menu, and cook for friends. My goal is to cook with people from all of the world (food is the universal language!). I share stories from my travel and food adventures at projectdinnerparty.com.
I am an explorer of science, ideas, culture, film, and novel experiences. I grew up in the deep south (which surprises many people), went to school near Boston, moved to Seattle for two years on a whim, went to Chicago for graduate studies, and moved to the Bay Area to use my new degree. I decided on a Thursday to move to SF and moved the following Sunday. Now, I'm traveling around the world to meet home cooks.
I am passionate about optimizing the boring things in life to make room for the good stuff. I am more interested in discovering new aspects of life and getting better at things a little every day. That doesn't mean that I don't do things on a whim or occasionally stay out way too late. I just live by the philosophy that fortune favors the prepared mind and think that the case can be made for moderation. That may sound boring, but I believe that it's ultimately fulfilling. Yes, I practice moderation in moderation.

Teach, Learn, Share
I'd love to share more than just couch space. I'd love to share photos, stories, and food. If you're coming from home, please bring an exotic snack or spice. I'd love to cook a traditional recipe from your country with you.
