I’m a Brooklyn-based, Chicago-bred Chef and TV Host. I’m also a pop-culture and entertaining expert. I graduated from Northwestern University where I studied theatre and film. I didn’t come from a long line of cooks, but I came from a family that prioritized flavor. I got my culinary degree from International Culinary Center in 2016, and perfected my skills at New York Times 3-Star Restaurant, Lilia, in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. I’ve been a TV host since I was 14. I’m a chef-personality on the Food Network / Cooking Channel’s “The Best Thing I Ever Ate”, Amazon’s “Today’s Deals Live”, and red carpet host for The James Beard Awards livestream on Twitter.
