  • Where are you from?  I am a born and raised New Yorker.

  • How did you end up working at Magnum? When I moved here a year ago, I had just finished traveling around Europe and was looking for my next adventure. I reached out to Ruth Reichl, who gave me a handful of awesome contacts in the SF-based food world. One of those contacts happened to be Jen, and after our initial meeting the rest is history.

  • What is your role on the team? I am a Junior Account Manager.

  • When did you know you wanted to work in food and/or media marketing I got my first introduction to the food world working at the renowned Levain Bakery at their Long Island location during Labor Day weekend when I was in high school. Working through the hustle and bustle of the bakery, I was hooked with working in the food world.

  • What is the most exciting part of being on the Magnum Team? As a team, we are never stagnant and are constantly learning from one another. Every day is different, which lets our creative juices flow!

  • You’re ordering a pizza, only one topping allowed, what is it? Homemade pesto. I’m always experimenting with different greens and veggies to make a new pesto.

  • What is a publication you are currently obsessed with? Bon Appétit for sure, their photography and content is always so interesting!

    What is the first city on your traveler’s bucket list? Tulum.

  • Where is your favorite place to eat right now? I live in the outer richmond neighborhood, and our go-to spot right now is Fiorella.

  • What is an ingredient you cannot cook without? Garlic. Minced, chopped, roasted, whole, raw (just kidding), I love garlic.

  • What is your perfect happy hour drink and vittle? It definitely depends, I have 3 go-tos. An aperol spritz, mojito, or a whiskey ginger!
