I nourish my soul and stomach through tending to my vegetable garden and fruit trees. You can find me homesteading on the weekends canning tomatoes and making preserves.

While I am rooted and inspired by historic craftsmanship, I also have an eye to the future, diving into the scientific advances of food technology. I’m driven by learning how things work, whether it’s watching a plant grow, fixing something around the house, or developing a new food. Coming to work each day allows me to learn not just the breadth but also the complex nuances of the food we eat, and I create; which and keeps my mind fueled for more.
