I live in Phoenix, AZ. It’s hot here. Really hot.

And therefore, I’m an avid traveler. Other cultures remind me of our interconnectedness and how I'm merely one member of a much greater global community. I’m inspired to create evocative work, which tells compelling stories, bringing us together to celebrate the human spirit.

When not working, I’m a kitchen-destroying, dinner-party enthusiast, routinely having 30-50 people over to my home for a meal and drinks. I’m also grateful for the opportunities I’ve had as a guest chef in various restaurants, where I’ve designed and executed 4 and 5-course tasting menus.

My friend and I just did 2.5-weeks in China for the first time and now I’m headed to the Oregon Coast at the end of this month.

Anyway… enough about me. What about you?

What’s your story? Let's work together to tell it!


Me… high up in the mountains of southern Mexico, about 40 miles east of Oaxaca, at a beautiful, remote site called Hierve el Agua. Warm mineral-water springs naturally seep out of the ground and over 1000s of years, have formed what  look  like huge waterfalls the height of a 15-story building (but are  actually  hardened minerals like stalactites in caves). These “waterfalls” don’t flow!
