  • Alexa is thankful to have had the opportunity to taste her way around the world. Her travels have allowed her to offer plenty of unique restaurant, bakery, and bar recommendations to anyone she meets along the way.
  • During the 2020 pandemic, she took a virtual pie-baking course taught by Candace Nelson, renowned pastry chef and co-founder of Sprinkles Cupcakes.
  • In 2023, Alexa traveled to Belize and immersed herself in a hands-on culinary experience. She learned about Belizean culture and cuisine by preparing authentic dishes in an open-heart kitchen with freshly harvested ingredients and centuries-old cooking techniques.


Born and raised in Southern California, Alexa found her passion for writing amidst the vibrant landscapes of her upbringing. Since obtaining her degree in creative writing, she enjoys crafting narratives centering around food, healthy living, and culinary travel. Her love for food and cooking started at a young age and was likely thanks to her grandmother, who equipped her with southern roots and endless family recipes that have been passed down for several generations. When Alexa isn't writing, she enjoys traveling to new destinations or trying out new trendy bars and restaurants that Los Angeles has to offer.


Alexa has a bachelor's degree in liberal arts with a focus in creative writing from Antioch University.
