Growing up in New Jersey, just half an hour outside New York City, I was raised in a melting pot of culture. Throughout my childhood, I spent many summers in Taiwan exploring its beautiful landscapes and expanding my palate. As I’ve grown older, I’ve had the immense pleasure of eating freshly baked bread on the streets of Paris as well as traversing the stone forests of Shilin in a downpour. My undergraduate career led me to study abroad in a remote area of Kenya, which enlightened me and taught me how to live closer to nature. Since graduating with a bachelor of science in Evolutionary Anthropology from Rutgers University, my travels have kept me within the states, and have allowed me to live in Boston, Queens, Las Vegas, Grand Junction and finally Boulder, where I am ready to sink my roots.
While trips in my past have been influenced by my family, my future journeys will be driven by my stomach, as I am as adventurous an eater as I am a traveler. I am a firm believer that the best way to learn about a culture is to understand what they eat, how they eat, where they eat and with whom they eat. I look forward to getting back overseas and discovering tastes I’ve never-before tasted, with people I have yet to meet.
