Food and wine has always been a big part of my life as well as my career. From design consultant for The Food Network for their national live tour to volunteering for the past six years for Taste of the Nation, an annual event that raises money for "No Kid Hungry", I have worn every possible hat from recruiting chefs and mixologists to creating marketing tools and filling swag bags. In 2014 I started my own food event: DNA Dinners, a Paris salon style intimate dinner where twelve strangers gather around the table to share a 5-course meal and conversation and leave as new friends.
