I am obsessed with food, my passion led me to become a qualified permaculturist where I have traveled to many countries to learn about farming. I can design growing systems (for any size land) based on natural ecosystems without pesticides. I am also a professional events manager where I have organized events for 5,000 - 200,000 people. I also run food tours in Centro, Mexico City, such as the Gourmet Walking Food Tour. My partner for this event is a Certified Mexican Chef!
