writer, educator, food advocate
Ingredients change and shift, ripen and sweeten, can be measured carefully or improvised. The same is true for what has made me who I am ~ my components may stay the same, but I use them in the ways I can best serve my family and my community in New Orleans. Fifteen years in our vibrant restaurant industry taught me that meaningful business is a result of nourishing ourselves and each other in every way possible. I do this through the attentive use of language as an author, poet, and teacher.
