MY GREATEST JOYS

I love enjoying food & wine in near silence. 

MY TRUE LOVES

Tallegio cheese, Chianti red's, Trentino white's, down dog, figs, this man, interviewing passionate human people, and feeling free. 

MY PERFECT DAY

Enjoying long lunches in the mountains of Trentino Italy in small, family owned restaurants that don't play music and don't have menu's. Lunch begins with a quartino of white wine & an insalata mista with a simple home made pasta. Followed by a local red that accompanies a cheese platter of raw & local cheeses from the Aldo Adige. The meal will end will a small piece of torta (cake) and grappa. The best part? The bill is about 25 euros. 

I’LL NEVER GET TIRED OF 

Eating a perfect meal, waking in silence, writing, mediation, travel, deep conversations, eye contact, alone time, long walks, learning Italian, wandering, putting my phone in a drawer, asking a million questions, and searching for my next perfect bite.

YOU’LL USUALLY FIND ME

In Santa Monica, Trentino, Chianti, Tokyo, on a plane, creating the perfect cheese plate, or in savassana. 

RIGHT NOW

I'm living in Santa Monica CA with Justin Mayer (my lover), and Pumpkin (my deaf cat). I see a full time move to Italy on the horizon.

I BELIEVE

1. You can say fuck + still be a yogi. 2. Amazing food doesn't have to be expensive. 3. You are all being way too loud. 4. I want to make a difference. Not make noise.

Executive Producer

Writer • Podcast Producer • Food fanatic • Animal Aficionado

I’m a storyteller who dreams of living in the mountains with WAY too many animals. I fell in love with food while working in Michelin star restaurants, discovered I was an entrepreneur at heart after hanging out with Richard Branson, and I believe writing can change your life.

MY GREATEST JOYS

Drinking coffee in bed, a perfectly cooked egg, the last bite of any meal, and colored-coded bookshelves (yup, OCD).

MY TRUE LOVES

Anything that purrs, barks, or neighs. Cooking for people I love & exploring new places.

I'LL NEVER GET TIRED OF

Learning, yoga, sleep, sex. Period. There you go.

YOU’LL USUALLY FIND ME

With a horse underneath me, stringing together words, or exploring the grocery store for undiscovered treasures.

RIGHT NOW

I’m having a blast discovering all of my superpowers that have been waiting to come out!

I BELIEVE

Your greatest self has been there all along. Start writing.
