        FOOD STYLIST//
//creative consultant


From the start of my career as a hungry young chef, to feeding my soul working with the earth on farms both domestic and abroad, I dig deep when it comes to the world of food.


After working in foodservice and gaining valuable kitchen skills at Seattle Culinary Academy, I went on to study writing & sustainable agriculture at Evergreen State College. As a broke graduate, my producer friend brought me into a Seattle photography studio for my first food stylist assisting job. I quickly accepted the call to move into this creative and generative culinary career. I returned to my home state of California in 2012 and began working in the industry full-time.

I constantly adapt to stay creative and inspired. In these uncertain times, I find my passion lies in dreaming and scheming the future into existence. Humans must evolve, collectively. Rebalancing our relationship to nature, food, health & justice is at the center of that movement. I choose to believe that we can "be the change."

I have used my ever-growing knowledge, skills, experience & wild style as a freelance creative culinary producer, consultant, recipe developer & food stylist for over a decade.

At this time I am accepting new food styling clients on a very limited basis. I remain open to refreshing conversations & equitable collaborations, for which you can contact me using the form below.


If you're intrigued, follow me on Instagram, where I intermittently share my smile, passions and current projects in a way that is nourishing for me... @leashthereal

Let's evolve y'all. <3
