  • Where are you from? Newport Beach, CA

  • How did you end up working at Magnum? Jen posted the job in a PR Facebook group I’m part of, which is ironic because I rarely check Facebook or that group, but it sounded like an amazing opportunity. I met Jen for coffee shortly thereafter and knew I wanted to be part of the Magnum team.

  • What is your role on the team? I’m an Account Manager, leading the Rich Table, Barzotto, AG Ferrari and TechTable teams.

  • When did you know you wanted to work in food and/or media marketing? I had an internship in college at a wine PR agency, and it totally opened my eyes to the fact that that was an actual career, so I pursued that after I graduated. I started out in wine for a few years but food is my real passion.

  • What is the most exciting part of being on the Magnum Team? I love getting to learn from an awesome team that has experience in so many different aspects of the food/restaurant industry. And it’s a bonus that I really enjoy spending time with my coworkers.

  • You’re ordering a pizza, only one topping allowed, what is it? Basil. I love a classic pizza margherita.

  • What is a publication you are currently obsessed with? Bon Appetit. Their photography and design is always so cool.

  • What is the first city on your traveler’s bucket list? Morocco and Iceland are currently tied for my next dream destination.

  • Where is your favorite place to eat right now? Octavia. Their squid ink noodles are out of control.

  • What is an ingredient you cannot cook without? Some kind of cheese ends up in almost everything I make.

  • What is your perfect happy hour drink and vittle? A Moscow mule (in a copper mug, of course) and a really good cheese and charcuterie plate.
