User Bio

I am a New York City and Los Angeles-based professional food stylist, recipe developer, and food writer. My styling aesthetic is versatile; I have a keen eye for the elegant and simple, but also for the raw and the abstract.

I grew up in Nicaragua and Mexico, and spent some time in Italy before attending Northwestern University, from where I graduated with a degree in Radio/TV/Film. I moved to New York after college and worked at InStyle, Lucky, and Vogue. My eye was further trained to focus on aesthetics and image composition, a skill I apply on set today: I know how to arrange food and props with precision for the camera.

I continue to develop recipes for magazines and commercial products and am the author of food blog as well as the columns, “Sandwiched” and "Let Them Eat Cake."
