I'm a fan of food and a lover of video games and technology. With an interest in both areas, I have a lot to write about.

My love for cooking and video games came from my family. I was never too far from the kitchen, where I helped whip up meals with my mother and grandmother.

But growing up with my older siblings, I was also fortunate to have exposure to every gaming system that’s arrived on the market, starting with the NES.

I find that I am drawn to similar aspects of food and gaming — social justice, diversity, innovation and fun. My voice throughout my work is all about centering underrepresented people in food and gaming.

Currently, I am an Associate Editor at 14 East Magazine at DePaul University, and I freelance for various media spaces. I have a B.A. from DePaul University and an Ed.M. and Ph.D. from the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign. This year, I’ll be graduating with an M.A. in Multimedia Journalism.

You’ll find me either inside playing one of my favorite games or munching on a tasty snack.
