Native Angeleno, nascent food writer, and pastry cook at Suzanne Goin's flagship restaurant Lucques in West Hollywood. I have also toiled on prep, hot apps, and pantry stations at Michelin-starred Water Grill in downtown Los Angeles.
My whisking delts are quite massive, but I can make a mean Sabayon.
Currently a contributor to LA Weekly's food blog Squid Ink. I hold various degrees from university but never set foot in culinary school; my kitchen adventures began by flipping 100% grass-fed burgers in the prepared foods department at Whole Foods Market in Glendale.
Favorite foods: donuts fried in food-grade oil, liege dessert waffles, leche frita, chaja, empanadas, churros, alfajores, laghmajune, anything with harissa, anything with manchengo y jamon serrano, kadota figs
