Los Angeles Eats Itself is an experience based event series that I created in 2013 that merges culinary arts, visual arts and product design in an event centered around one infamous moment in Los Angeles’ history. I am the lead creative director of the ten part series which means I choose the participating artist(s) and chef(s) who will collaborate during each meal as well as over see the staging of the venue and the site specific installations. Additionally I play a direct part in the design and production of key elements such as an edition of products, food concepts and how the sequence of the event eventually unfolds.
For the Fleiss Feast I acted as producer and creative consultant and worked with Artist Chris Reynolds, head Chef Teresa Montaño (formerly the head chef and owner of the renowned Racion) and Chef Mia Wasilevich, author of Ugly Little Greens. As the producer of one of the first culinary biographies, I also assisted in developing the visual identity of the logo as well as overseeing the installation and staging of the main event area.
