Since 1995 I've worked in the education departments of such renowned museums as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Museum of Modern Art, Brooklyn Museum of Art and the J. Paul Getty Museum at the Getty Villa; and have worked as a private chef and caterer. In 2007, I founded ArtBites, art and culinary history combined with hands-on cooking instruction, which I teach at museums across the country.
