I am an accomplished culinary educator, cookbook developer and food stylist.
I was raised in a "Foodie Family." My grandfather owned and operated a thriving kosher supermarket business in West Hartford, CT. Food has always been in my blood.
After graduating from Boston University with a degree in Mass Communication. I continued my education at The Culinary Institute of America. After graduating from The CIA, I began my career in New York City. My food styling and recipe development clients consisted of Kraft, Black and Decker, Campbell's Soup Company, and Lipton. I was the recipe developer for a cookbook called, "Jewish Holiday Style" and was a contributing writer and food stylist for various publications including FamilyFun Magazine.
In 2004 my family decided to relocate to South Florida. I started a cooking school for children and it has been running ever since. In 2015 I went on to get my certification in plant based nutrition from Cornell.
Just recently, I have been splitting my time between South Florida and Portland, Maine. I am involved in teaching and food styling and have worked on various projects including book projects for The Maine Fishermen's Association, Gibbs Smith Publishing House, The Seminole Casino, and Garden of Life.
