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.
