Growing up in a house full of artists and dreamers, I found my talent and happiness in the world of cakes and pastries. Right out of high school, I studied baking and pastry at The Art Institute of Phoenix. I resided in Arizona for about eight years after that and I embarked on my journey into the cake world. I worked along side great teachers and inspirational people everywhere from Phoenix, Scottsdale, and Tempe, AZ. I came to find that I had to work on my own for a while in order to start finding my own style and designs. I moved back to my home town and worked four years along side pastry chefs to further my knowledge in the pastry world. Finally I felt ready to venture out on my own and start to realize my own dreams. I love to discover and experiment with different forms of edible materials and techniques. I always try to look out for new forms of inspirations, anywhere from fashion, photography, and textile design. My goals are to some day inspire others with my creations and to never stop thinking out of the box. I believe that we should trust our own ideas and never be afraid to follow our own creative instincts.
