I have over 20 years of editorial, publishing, and project management experience in traditional and digital media channels (online, social, mobile, video) covering all aspects food, beverage, and lifestyle industries.
If you are a food-centric start-up, media company, or nonprofit and hope to get penetration and conversion in the Bay Area, you need to talk to me.
I have a deep knowledge of the restaurant world on both the regional and national level, with an exhaustive personal network of players on the food landscape. I have a successful track working with both start-ups like Tastemade and tech giants such as Microsoft and Google.
My personal passion is to lead meaningful conversation about food and to harness the power of technology to improve the public's access, understanding and pleasure of it.
I also have 7 years experience working in public schools and youth communities, heading up fundraisers, teaching technology and garden programs, directing a garden-to-table summer camp at 18 Reasons, spearheading parent advocacy groups to improve SFUSD school food, and mentoring middle school girls in a tech entrepreneur boot camp.
