I've worked for five years as an advertising creative. And while I love making ads, I'll never love them more than brunch, lobster rolls and medium-rare bone-in ribeyes. As a freelance foodie-for-hire, I've created original recipes, food styled and directed for brands like Planters Peanuts, Stella Artois, Wild Turkey Bourbon, PF Chang's and Coffeemate.  I enjoy experimenting with the ways we present food visually as much as how we deliver it to people online. I'm a maker who can create original content across various media. I've written, styled, shot and directed for online films, drool-worthy cinemagraphs, editorial and video recipes. 

Refinery29 featured me in their "Top 25 Foodies To Follow On Instagram" . You can also find my original creations on MashableBuzzfeed, Foodbeast, Food&WinePSFK and Bravo.

Working in advertising gave me valuable agency and client experience, helping me understand client needs while bringing the creative vision to life. I've worked as a creative at agencies like Droga5, TBWA Chiat-Day and 360i on a number of global brands and consumer packaged goods across digital, social, integrated campaigns, film and print.
