It was my 18th birthday that did it. A magical garden, filled with the dulcet tones of a jazz band under a fig tree laden with twinkling lights. A hundred-plus friends, three costume changes, and a $200 budget.
That day marked the start of a lifelong love affair with feasting and gathering. My journey has taken me to 28 cities in 12 countries across 3 continents, and through many professional roles. Through it all, the common thread of gathering around a table has weaved its way into every aspect of my life and enriched it in ways I could never have imagined.
In the past 17 years, I've hosted, organised, catered, and/or officiated: 64 weddings; 150 large scale events, festivals and fundraisers; and over 1,000 birthdays, dinners, bridal and baby showers, anniversaries, engagements, round-tables, conferences and happy hours.
I've had the honour of playing with kids in the projects of Los Angeles, and of hosting Heads of State as they've met Grammy award-winning performers. Joined by some incredibly talented people who have epic voyager stories of their own, we want to bring new life to these ancient, time honoured rituals of feasting, gathering and the sharing of experiences and stories.
Whether you're planning something for five people or fifty-thousand, we invite you to take a seat at the Voyager's Table, and let us help you tell your story.
The journey has just begun. Wanderers, welcome.
