I'm a cookbook-collecting, recipe-developing junkie, and I live in the kitchen. I love food and have a blast plating my creations and then testing my photograph skills, which is an ongoing learning experience in itself. I’m hooked on farmers’ markets, traveling, eating healthy and hiking until my legs scream at me. I love to communicate through my books, and I’m also a good listener. I care about others. There’s nothing better than being among family and good friends. I really have fun, and sleeping is just plain boring. Get to know me better below, visit one of my websites, or connect with me on my contact page.
I worked in the back end of the entertainment business for many years primarily helping children advance their careers, founded Show Biz Kidz, and ultimately wrote The Show Biz Kidz Guidebook. Eventually I got into real estate and investing, which I still do. As a foodie, I went flat out into food, taking numerous classes and working closely with highly regarded chefs. I worked for many years in the gluten-free food and health arena. I founded the website GlutenFreeHelp.info, which was voted #2 website in the world out of 6.7 million others. I have worked with many food companies, universities, doctors and nutritionists, doing numerous interviews and radio shows, etc. to help raise awareness for celiac disease. I authored the popular children’s book, Danny the Dragon Meets Jimmy, which is available on CD and DVD and in two apps for Apple. Danny the Dragon was actually the first-ever app with sign language interpretation. I eventually was led into the wonderful world of paleo which I have worked in ever since and am an advocate for. I now develop paleo gluten-free recipes and write full-time about paleo and gluten-free issues in many articles and books, some of them award-winning. I work with many others in this field. I also consult individuals, families, restaurants and businesses about the paleo diet, gluten-free eating, and celiac disease.
