I'm a food-obsessed advocate, journalist, and future lawyer.

I've spent my career working to make the world a better place to work and eat. I think good listening, sharp storytelling, and smart policy-making will get us there. I'm in my second year of studying civil and common law at McGill University. I also have a Masters in Food Systems from NYU and an honours degree in multimedia journalism from Emerson College, a stack of cookbooks, and over six years of communications experience.

I'm currently an intern with Harvard's Food Law and Policy Clinic, where I help find solutions to some of the thorniest problems facing our food systems. In my pre-law-school days, I was the first editor of both GOOD Magazine's food vertical and Taste Talks, a festival series and awards program that charts the cutting-edge in food and drink; a media curator for Facebook; a food policy and restaurant work reporter for VICE Munchies, ForbesLucky Peach, and others; and an international politics editor for GlobalPost. Some of my favourite work was as a host and producer for Heritage Radio Network, the only station in the world dedicated entirely to food.

In my free time, I cook and deliver meals to community members; ride my bike, snowboard, and hike, depending on the weather; practice yoga and meditation; and host giant dinner parties.
