“When I was a kid, my father would reward us with a meal. Everytime one of us achieved something, it was celebrated around our table. When I got a little older, I started joining him in the kitchen – I wanted to be part of the process that made everyone feel happy. I went to filmmaking school and worked in that for a while, but there was something missing. At 28, I re-evaluated my life and thought carefully about what I wanted to do. It brought me back to where everything had started – kitchens. I still think my filmmaking and photography experience comes into play every so often, gives me a unique perspective.”
