What is your favorite memory or experience from your time with the SFA?
My first time working at the 2019 Summer Fancy Food Show would have to be one of my favorite memories. I was in awe of the convention, the food, the people and the energy! SFA is a community full of interested, passionate, and innovative specialty food lovers! Meeting the Awards winners, specifically, was a highlight for me as I had been working closely with them leading up to the Meet & Greet.
Where were you born?
Do you prefer to eat in or go out?
If my mom or is cooking, I prefer in. Otherwise, I love me a good meal out.
What is your fondest food memory?
I feel fortunate to have had a variety of fond food memories. One that sticks out to me the most was on Christmas Eve in a small mountain town in Calabria, Italy. I stayed with family-friends to celebrate the holiday. We started the seven fishes at 8 pm and past midnight. Food was on rotation for 4+ hours, and, of course, it was incredible.
What is your favorite food city?
Every city has its however, Italy as a whole rarely disappoints.
What is the strangest thing you’ve eaten?
I was given a sugar cane stalk to gnaw on in Haiti. I didn't really care for the texture. It was a unique and interesting experience.
Best piece of advice you have been given and has served you well?
