Thank you for visiting! I am a professionally trained cook, recipe developer, food photographer and food stylist based in Seattle.  

Having earned my culinary degree at Seattle Culinary Academy, I was voted top student by my chef instructors.  I had my first 35 mm camera 27 years ago and have studied darkroom techniques and art along the way through my young adulthood.  More recently I've had the great fortune to study photography and food styling with a number of my photography heroes, including Patricia Ridenour at Photo Center Northwest, Aran Goyoaga, Helene Dujardin, Clare Barboza, Penny de los Santos, and Lara Ferroni.  I also assisted Kathy Casey as a food styling intern for her latest cookbook, D'Lish Devilled Eggs.

My regular column, "Cooking Fresh" in Edible Seattle Magazine, features my recipes and food photography.  You can also see my photography on several websites, including
