Cook: Share : Connect
I am a multimedia storyteller and creator of storycooking.com. My work revolves around media and food literacy.
I use food as a starting point for conversations and community building. I am an artist, educator and self taught cook. I am a member of Chefs Consortium. I worked for over a decade for newspapers as a photojournalist. I received my MFA in Electronic Arts from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. My journey started when I realized food and cameras are at the center of my life and art. Food and cameras are the tools I use to communicate and build interpersonal connections and community.
I live in Bangor, Maine with my husband and our two children and our dog Kora. I was born in Brazil and spent most of my childhood weekends at my grandparents’ small farm. There was a story behind everything we did with our food – from how it was harvested, cooked, and shared.
