In short, I am a culinary enthusiast. I'm a food + prop stylist, food writer, recipe and content creator, and a cake and pastry artist.
Basically, my life revolves around food, and I am a 'jack-of-all-trades' when it comes to food and lifestlye.
I grew up in the Philippines, and in 2008 my family and I moved to Toronto . In 2011, I graduated from George Brown's Culinary Management Program in the hopes of becoming a chef. I worked in a number of restaurants and catering businesses including Toben Food by Design, The Liberty Grand Group and their multiple establishments, and catered for the Toronto Film Festival.
In 2013, I found myself looking for a new passion - Food Styling. I was hired at a creative and communications agency, which gave me the opportunity to sharpen my skills and knowledge in the food & beverage marketing industry as a Food/Prop Stylist and Recipe Developer. Here, I got to work with tier1 brands from across North America.
Apart from food styling, I've also worked with cookbook authors, dietitians, and on television sets including Food Network's Fire Masters, and other shows like The Great Canadian Baking Show, Master Chef Canada, and The Big Bake. All of this, I've done while elevating my passion for pastry by creating custom cakes and sweets for varying clients.
