When I graduated from the Culinary Institute of America, I immediately started working as a freelance events chef.
After fighting my way into the industry, I got to work with celebrities like Paul McCartney and large companies like Ann Taylor but whether I was working with private or corporate clients, I kept noticing the same thing...
People struggle to connect.
They pace, they eat, they mingle, they refill their cocktails. It's an awkward dance that I personally can't stand, so I started creating the events I wanted come to.
"I started creating the events I wanted come to"
...events that are 80% interactive where people are engaging from the moment they arrive.
No small talk
There is a surplus of loneliness and deficit of connection. My goal in life is to help close that gap.
