Born and raised in Northern California, I am 100% Italian with deep ties to those Italian roots.

My passion is great food with depth of flavor. I do not eat to live, I live to eat so every meal is important and seen in my eyes as an opportunity to create or experience something really tasty.

I love finding new and trendy places to dine (both locally or while traveling), exploring different cuisines from all cultures and ethnicities, and entertaining family and friends in our home.

Some of my favorite memories involve lingering around the table with my extended family after a big Sunday night dinner prepared by the women who taught me much of what I know culinarily and to value slow food.

If it’s savory and salty there’s a 99.999999% chance that I’ll love it!
