Summary

I have lived all over the US and in multiple countries. I have worked in multiple restaurants, although it is not reflected on my resume. I would be happy to send a list of the places I've worked. I spent six years working with chefs and authors in cookbook publishing world in NYC (Cooking with Italian Grandmothers (IACP and IPPY winner), Afield (James Beard Nominated), Off the Menu, Primal Cuts, Made in America). I also worked for JustFood.org under Jessica Gaffney (Former Director of Marketing on multiple events). I planned The Butcher's Guild conference in Napa. I created a workshop in Chicago called Sustainable:: Cities at a cooking school, as part of the Off the Menu book tour. I have been responsible for garnering press and sponsorship/partnerships for cookbooks and events.
