Meet the team
I decided to start MealTribes as a way to scratch my own itch. I've always been a fan of potluck dinners. While the food is delicious, the act of sitting down and sharing food creates surprisingly deep bonds with others - especially those you wouldn't have likely ever met otherwise. Every dinner has been unique, and I believe in the long-term value of generating synergy by connecting others.
In some ways, family meals have defined my life. The dinner table has always been a place for me to de-stress, catch up with those whom I love and provide the right unifier for those whom I am just getting to know. I believe in the community of MealTribes and its power to open people up to alternate perspectives and engage strangers in meaningful conversation.
My brain engages differently when I'm connecting face to face with people. Ideas come flooding in and I feel happier, fuller, and like my life has meaning. At MealTribes, I feed not only on delicious food, but contagious energy. I love that we are creating a container that nurtures quality conversations over quantity of them.
As an eclectic creative, MealTribes captured my attention as being the perfect intersection of hospitality and networking. My friends know me as sort of a manic connector when it comes to meeting people. MealTribes gives me the opportunity to take a deep breath and let my food do the talking.
