I moved to Portland following my dreams. I am a NYC girl, entrepreneur, technology savvy, a solid human-being about what is right and wrong. My sons say I cook with fire & love; I think it's my passion to share and cooking is one of the ways i know how. Learning is my greatest passion. Becoming my best self is how i am living life on life's terms, sometimes it brings me to tears other times leaving me breathless. Giving to others in anyway everyday if all i have is a smile you can count on me giving you my warmest one. Living this life is what i'm doing, and becoming my best self is the course, let me know how i can do it better. Mangia Ganja
