One piece of advice I would give to my 18-year-old self:
Listen more and follow your intuition, always.
Your most recent culinary discovery and obsession:
CBD oil brownies. Dark chocolate infused with calming oils. Need I say more?
Skincare product I can’t live without:
Run your own race.
Your last great read and why you enjoyed it:
Coming to My Senses: The Making of a Counterculture Cook by Alice Waters. Waters’ is an icon and her coming of age story behind the creation of Chez Panisse was inspiring. I resonated with how impressions of culture, friendships and travel led her to launch a business born from passion, will and the desire to communicate something larger through her work.
You decompress each day by:
I decompress by doing an hour of hot yoga to wind down the day. If I can’t get to class, a beautiful glass of red wine is the ticket.
Something you never see going out of style is:
Respect and kindness.
What is the best gift you’ve ever received:
My parents. I’m adopted, and I could not be luckier to have been raised with so much love, compassion, and support throughout the years.
