Food links everything I care about--justice, social equality, community development, and neighborhood and urban ecology. I use writing and storytelling as a means to understand food-based issues and create conversation. Further, I use food as a subject that others can approach alongside me.
I have trained at several esteemed Oakland restaurants (Pizzaiolo//Duende) and worked for Riverdog Farm. I spent the last several summers teaching kids to cook at a culinary program in Emeryville, CA. I am a freelance food writer with pieces featured in the Oakland Tribune/ Mercury News.
I am now at Bard College in Upstate New York where I am studying photography and human rights, focusing on Queer Studies.
