My experience as a chef, stylist, and photographer has received many awards including APA Top 100, ACF Gold Medal, and a juried exhibit at Art Basel Miami. I trained at the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York, and the Richemont Fachschule in Luzern, Switzerland, and was an Executive Pastry Chef with 2 Hyatt Hotels and Resorts. I completed certificates for Visual Art and Professional Graphic Design at U.C. Berkeley Extension in San Francisco.
I am a San Francisco Bay Area-based chef and food photographer whose career with food spans three decades. My approach to food photography is meticulous because of my knowledge and relationship with ingredients, cooking processes, recipe development, and flavor pairings.
