I have over ten years of experience in the food and beverage industry, under the direction of Chef José Andrés’ Think Food Group in Washington D.C. Curating events ranging from large fundraisers for President Barack Obama to intimate outdoor forest-to-table dinners for locavore enthusiasts, I grew wildly passionate about opportunities to engage farmers, distillers, chefs, and the greater community together to enjoy a meal forged by individual talents and welded through collaboration. Merging my talent for curating events, and my passion for food and gardening, with my deep interest in linking people in urban environments to their food and garden resources by way of their landscapes, I am now on my way to earning an MLA from Harvard's Graduate School of Design.
