Hey y’all! I’m Haley – a Los Angeles based food photographer, videographer, food stylist, and recipe developer. I started Brewing Happiness back in 2014 as a way to work through my complicated feelings about food and my body. Along the way, I’ve found balance, health, and most importantly *happiness*. It’s my hope this website can be a platform for you to do the same.
Before running Brewing Happiness I attended Chapman University where I studied filmmaking and screen acting. I thought I was going to be an actress, but alas life had different (better) plans. I’m much happier playing with food everyday.
When I’m not shooting videos or photos of food, you can find me taking a dance class, walking around my neighborhood, or doing a crossword puzzle. xo.
Favorite foods: pizza, tacos, and curry
I’m Ryan, the official head of Brewing Happiness’ test kitchen. Before joining BH in 2020, I worked in restaurants for 15+ years. I attended Johnson and Wales for culinary school. Since then, I have both worked in well known kitchens like State Road (where I cooked for the Obamas) and Botanica, as well as a private chef.
At Brewing Happiness, I’m excited to take all of my knowledge to help make your kitchen experience easier and more fun.
When I’m not in the kitchen you can find me sewing aprons, painting, doing bonsai, or doing crossword puzzles with Haley.
