Meet April

Meet April

My story really began when I moved from Florida to San Francisco, CA for an unpaid internship. I join the music business and startup-land, which led to social media and community management. Except that I'm happiest making things. 

During my time at the startup Foodspotting, I wrote, curated, and edited 75 dishes for The Foodspotting Field Guide (Chronicle Books, March 2014). I spent weeks eating, writing, and researching. It was lot of work but incredibly fun. So I made a a scary (but honest) decision: ok, no more desk jobs. I joined the Makeshift Society, took a watercolor class with Emily Proud and the rest is present day history.

I am now a practicing writer, artist, and illustrator. You'll find my work across the web, like in the Chefs+Tech Newsletter, and in print, on the pages of Edible San Francisco and Weekend Almanac.

If you'd like to collaborate or hire me, please email meI like watercolor, gouache, food, and donuts.
