🍜C O O K I N G will always be my first great love. Back in Cali, I cooked on the line + got my ass kicked, I paid my way thru culinary school (still am paying the loans!) I moved my ass to NYC + took risks on my own. I’ve written hundreds of recipes + I only did it because I loved it. I went totally broke, check to check teaching cooking classes + writing for mags, writing books in Brooklyn, I still found so much joy in food. I said no to shows, brands + projects I didn’t believe in. I found joy in being broke, yet creative.
Find something you’re really good at, and make it a business. Make it your thing. I’ve also been directing, writing + producing all of my books, vids and content since I got started. I always knew as an artist nobody can truly see, feel, hear, taste, touch your vision, unless you create it. Don’t be afraid to step up and work on your own brand. It will take time, but all you have to do is start with the first step, let the rest follow.
