Two of my biggest passions have always been food and hospitality- I love eating, I love cooking for others, and I love connecting people. I learned all the basic cooking skills from my mother growing up, and taught myself how to cook for real when I was in college, trapped in the middle of nowhere with the ranked 9th worst college cafeteria in the country. Around then I also started a tradition of themed dinner parties- a hobby I expanded upon in the past year by throwing pop-up dinners in the NYC area for friends and strangers alike. While I just did the first dinner for fun, I was met with an unexpected volume of gratitude and future interest, so I now work professionally as a chef who caters, teaches in-home cooking lessons, and works intimate and personalized dining events!
