Unless you’re in Minnesota, Wisconsin or the immediate area, you’ll need to contact my agent
Are you an event planner in the Midwest looking for speakers, teachers, chefs, or all of the above? You’re in the right place. Reading about exciting ingredients and technique is one thing, seeing them first hand and having me interact with your guests is another experience completely.
I’ve coordinated things for groups as small as 4, and for as large as a couple hundred. The more notice I have for planning the better, generally 1-2 weeks of notice can work, but looking ahead a few months in advance can create truly special, custom experiences. I have access to ingredients and wholesale suppliers and can source just about anything with enough notice, but the most exciting ingredients come from my personal stock.
If you’re located in the Twin Cities Metro, I occasionally do these. Full disclosure: my friend Sam Thayer located in Bruce WI is much more knowledgeable about plants than me, contact him at www.foragersharvest.com
I’m co-producer and talent of my ongoing series with Repast Studios, and have been lead talent for a number of pilots/sizzle reels for broadcast or online distribution. I’m no stranger to the camera. Contact me to discuss, or check out my video page for some samples.
Are you a chef or restaurant owner/manager in Minnesota? Does your menu need help? FOH or BOH staff need training? Need a new expediting system? Don’t know where or how to contact the best local food sources or develop systems and an ethical supply chain? I’ve been through openings, closings, and everything in between.
Content and Recipe Development
I love developing recipes. I’ve worked with small, local operations and large corporations in the US, as well as internationally.
Image Licensing and Contract Photography
I’m not a professional photographer, but I do have a database of over 20,000 images of wild life, mushrooms, various foods, cuts of meat I occasionally rent out. I also have years of experience in styling meat for online retail product photography using only natural light.
