I am a multimedia storyteller and creator of storycooking.com. My work revolves around media and food literacy.
I use food as a starting point for conversations. I am an artist, educator, and member of Chefs' Consortium. I received my MFA in Electronic Arts from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. My journey started when I realized food and cameras are at the center of my life and art. Food and cameras are the tools I use to communicate and build interpersonal connections and community.
I live in Troy, New York with my husband and our two children. I was born in Brazil and spent most of my childhood weekends at my grandparents’ small farm.
There was a story behind everything we did with our food – from how it was harvested, cooked, and shared.
