Where it all Began

I’m a self-taught cook that has been saving recipes and cooking since I was about 8 years old. This was way before the Food Network, in case you were trying to do the math.

I spent 18 years working as a DNA Criminalist and Cold Case Homicide Investigator. I loved this job and have been involved in solving many Cold Cases.

I left my career in Forensic Science at the end of 2018 to pursue my true passion for Cooking and Food Photography. [Read more about finding the courage to leave my career.]
