  • Dani won first place in a Dewar's Scotch Winter Cocktail Competition.
  • The oldest daughter in a family of seven, she began learning how to elevate budget-friendly ingredients at a young age.
  • An avid fitness-lover, she's always looking for creative ways to incorporate protein into her (mostly) vegetarian diet.


Dani is a writer and editor who's as passionate about food as she is about the written word. Working in bars and restaurants throughout high school and college, she spent eight years immersed in the world of food and beverage — often sneaking off to the kitchen during breaks to learn how each dish on the menu was prepared. After undergrad, Dani packed up her bar kit and apron to begin a career as a copywriter for major brands. When she's not reading or working, you can find her trying new recipes, hosting dinner parties, and scouring her local farmers' market.


Dani holds a B.A. in English from California State University, Fullerton.
