Ever since I was a kid, I have been obsessed with baking and watching cooking shows (two of my favorites: Alton Brown’s Good Eats & The Great British Bake Off). I grew up in San Diego but have lived in New York, New Jersey, Turkey, North Carolina and now the Bay Area- all of which have influenced the way I eat. To me, there’s nothing better than freshly made flour tortillas or a perfectly brewed pot of tea.

Two of my favorite hobbies are grocery shopping and trying out new restaurants. I always go out of my way to check out local grocery stores whenever I travel (there is always something unique to find!).
