Meet Your Instructor

My career in food started when I began helping a friend cater dinner parties in San Francisco. Three years later and a cross country move, I landed my dream job at America’s Test Kitchen. I eventually made my way to Taste of Home magazine, editing and developing recipes and producing their video content.

Most recently I worked as the manager of original programming for NBCUniversal’s, Bluprint, managing the full arc of culinary content creation for long format cooking and baking videos. Eager to get back on set, in December of 2018, I broke out on my own culinary producing and food styling for a range of publishers, product lines, and media platforms.
