“New Orleans is my hometown, so I am thrilled to be back. As a gastronome and fine art consultant, I have found that this city is the perfect fit – and because New Orleans is a city focused on tourism, there are always opportunities to meet people from all over the world. Living here presents an exciting opportunity to contribute to the cultural landscape. My favorite place in the city has yet to be discovered. From the New Orleans Museum of Art (NOMA), to Breads on Oak, to the McKenna Museum, there is always something to discover and experience. I am excited to discover many new favorites for years to come.”
