Could you provide a brief bio about your company and how you started it?
I’m a freelance self-taught cook that blends food, culture and design. I cook and build baked goods and dishes that not only taste good but are visually a combination of art and cuisine. While the focus on food and cooking didn’t happen after university, I’ve always been interested in it and it has developed pretty organically. I’ve always craved work that is creative and meditative at the same time. Spending time around the kitchen and cooking has always been part of my life but everything began during the pandemic when life shifted and I discovered what I’m passionate about.
What do you find the most rewarding?
I’ve never felt more inspired than I have in the past two years… I learn something new almost everyday. Looking back at how my style and eye have evolved rewards me and pushes me to keep developing and creating.
What is your favorite item to bake and why?
It really depends on my mood. But mostly something simple and uncomplicated with interesting final results. The simple things are always in the safe spot, you can never go wrong!
More collaborations with local brands in Miami! I love the idea of bringing different industries together to use food as an artistic medium… such as fashion and food for example. Excited to keep exploring!
