A NOTE FROM THE FOUNDER

 

MAC N' CHEESE
WITH CHAMPAGNE

Was the first dinner I ever served. I was 6 and it was my parent's anniversary. With obvious limitations of cash and ability, I maintained a determination to create a lit celebration. This desire: to turn nothing into something and deliver despite obstacles -- was a learned mentality. I attribute this outlook to 2 early constants in life: the kitchen that raised me and the music through my headphones.

From then on, food and hip hop culture would remain my OG loves. Burning mixtapes for friends. Serving up hot plates in dorms. House party playlists, DatPiff, and Hip Hop Early. 

Much to my delight, I get to continue to work with these steady loves from event planning on yachts to vendor management for the hottest LES street food conglomerate. That scrappy, hustler mentality has resulted in securing sponsorship deals with brands like Nike and Honest Tea and placing culture projects with press outlets like MTV, HuffPost Music, and Mashable. 

Today, it's a real opportunity to build this dream and share it with you. It's so dope to have a passion that can create success and sharing. If you'd like to pitch collaborations, creative projects, or new ideas, link up with me (fill out the contact form!).
