What have you been up to since graduation?
I've had a wide range of roles in the food industry—from front of house at Maialino, to writing and photographing for Eater, to a wide range of jobs for start-up food concepts. Eventually, I went back to Cornell for a masters in hospitality management , to learn the business side of the industry. From there, I worked as the marketing manager at The Taco Truck before becoming head of marketing at Luke's Lobster.
