Pastry & Baking Arts

Bio

Born in the Philippines and raised in Queens, New York. I am current a hospitality management student in the New York City College of Technology, CUNY focusing on the Baking & Pastry Arts. From the hospitality management, I want to grow my skills in the pastry arts. My long term goals are to open my own bakery and become a HMGT Professor to teach potential business professionals. Aside from baking, discover new bakeries or restaurants which I speak about in my Instagram food blog @thebaking.diary.
