founder/ceo

We are young at heart. We are bakers, pastry chefs, writers, photographers, painters, musicians, artists, and passionate individuals. The Milk Bar team inspires me daily. I could never do it alone. Our team comes from all walks of life. We love individuality and diversity. Everyone has a love for food, a passion for hard work, a heart full of integrity. We’re up for anything, and never more than 5 seconds away from cracking a joke. We love food, we love to create. We have a family in one another, we challenge and push each other daily to be better than the day before. I am who I am and Milk Bar is what it is because of our undying sense of team and the individual players that make it happen each and every day.
