I’m a Food Researcher and Artist with a focus on Food & Memory: exploring how food connects past, present, and future and how we construct identity through food memories.  San Francisco is my new hometown as I make vermouth and conduct research on School Food.  I graduated with my Master’s degree in Gastronomy (Food Studies) from Boston University in 2019, having hosted a series of Nostalgia Dinners and written my thesis on how food is used in response to trauma.  I believe everyone has food stories to tell, and that eating is learning.

To see what I’m thinking and writing about lately, check out my blog on this site.
