I create content, write books, run events, and help food, beverage, & travel businesses build and grow.
I’ve published best-selling coffee books in 13 languages; helped set up and managed MAST Chocolate’s bean-to-bar chocolate factory in London; headed a cooking school run with ‘food waste’; worked as one of Chef Dan Barber’s senior managers at Blue Hill at Stone Barns; judged food and coffee for the UK’s prestigious Great Taste Awards; set up brands and retail stores in Singapore; written culinary articles for magazines and newspapers; and researched food production and preparation all around the world.
Today, I help existing brands and aspirational business owners with development, strategy, and implementation.
I also design and direct educational programming for Coffee Fest; teach coffee history at Portland State University; run food and beverage events; and continue to write and create books and content around food, travel, and coffee.
