Twenty-seven years in food & beverage brought me here today. I wore every hat from server to line-cook to chef, from bookkeeper to manager and then later in my career, as the owner of a boutique California wine brokerage company.

Taste With The Eyes was born in 2007 of a life-long passion for cooking and entertaining plus a keen interest in photography and the visual aspect of food in general.  It has been my absolute honor to work with world-class chefs and world-class companies as well as small local restaurants and important local charities.

I am an omnivore with a broad and discerning palate; fortunate to have traveled quite a bit and dined at some the world’s finest restaurants from LA to Chicago to Las Vegas, New York to Paris, as well as the local hole-in-the-walls too. It would be my pleasure to Test Your Cookbook or Brand Recipes for taste, appearance, accuracy, and appeal. I have a special fondness for esoteric ingredients. In fact, the yuzu fruit for the Yuzu Tea in the image above is from my LA garden.

Table setting had been a hobby of mine for almost three decades, culminating in several Blue Ribbons from the Los Angeles County Fair in the tablescape competitions. My china, glass, and silver collection is now used for Props for Styling food photography. I have amassed a pretty wide array of tableware and cookware that coax out the best qualities of the dish for the camera.

Also please note, I do only Natural Food Styling; I achieve the beautiful images without using un-natural products or the toxic old tricks of yesteryear’s food images. All of my finished images are authentic, completely edible and delicious!

It would be my pleasure to work with you, your restaurant, your publication, or your brand to create beautiful mouthwatering images, amazing recipes, or capture one-of-a-kind events to help promote your business.

Be they large or small, I’m excited to talk about your food-related and/or photography needs, please contact me here.
