I would love to tell you some idyllic story about tugging at cocoa-dusted apron strings at the knees of my mother or my Nana, waxing poetic about the smell of lemons and thyme while we hung dish dowels out to dry; showing you photos of me elbows-deep in mixing bowls and covered in flour, and asking you to scroll through approximately 284 column inches of text to get to a recipe.
Getting here was messy, a little convoluted, and in parts, frightening as f@$%.
But we made it. I am doing what I love.
While I am beyond grateful for my place in this world, along with my opportunities and resources, I wasn't born into the food and beverage industry, or food writing, or even that much cooking. I am a legal director and business manager and tech writer by trade, and a zealous, intrepid gastronome and beverage enthusiast by continued experience.
The truth is this: my kitchen/food life growing up was not so much magical as is was practical--yet, no less nostalgic and formative.
Today I get to eat well, drink well, learn every day, and share with anyone who will listen.
