About Me

Hello, my name is Cindy. I love anything creative and hands-on. This includes being a mechanical engineer, cook, food stylist, and artist (we’ll see how that goes, ha!).

I have been a mechanical engineer for 6 years and moved to NYC from Southern CA two and a half years ago. Since then, I have gone to the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park for a year (experiences I will put in writing in later posts) to study Culinary Arts as another passion of mine.

I moved around a lot while growing up and have still yet to figure out who I really am. No matter where I’ve been, food and imagination have always played a big role every step of the way – through starvation, loneliness, happiness, nostalgia, and much much more. This is where I want to document how I became what I am now from the beginning, and show how food has shaped my story. In many ways, the act of eating (or not eating) is how my memories are pieced together.

Thank you for reading and sharing these moments with me. To see where it all begins, please see my first post here.
