Chocolate making is a sacred dance between science, art, and activism. Everything I do at Dulcinea is done with deliberation and intent - every part of the process passes through my hands.

Transforming cacao beans and sugar into pure chocolate has changed my world in the most amazing ways. And I go work each day attempting to return the favor as respectfully and artfully as possible.

I am driven by the notion of crafting delicious, ethically and socially responsible chocolate. I find great joy in this process and hope you taste it in every bite.
