Skye was born with a propensity for the culinary arts, food and every relatable topic. Her close-knit family always has food as the focus of gatherings. Every tradition they keep circulates around recipes that have been passed down for generations or new experimental dishes.

She considers herself a culinary expert after taking a variety of incredible classes ranging from culinary labs, Food Science and Nutrition Education to Organic Chemistry and Microbiology to Intimate Relationships and Issues in The Family.
Skye wants to share her extensive food knowledge through TV. Her first appearance on WTOC-Savannah in 2010 she was quoted, “I just really like eating”. From there, she aspired to make TV an integral part of her career in food. She sharpened her skills in college by performing food demonstrations at the local senior center. Then, she transitioned to a role with Atlanta’s local food TV show, Atlanta Eats. Skye worked for 2 ½ years with the company as the Marketing Manager. She planned all digital content, social media (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat), wrote articles and managed contributors. Skye also restaurant- scouted for the show and worked in sales. After a few months with Atlanta Eats, Skye began co-hosting weekly restaurant segments on Atlanta Plugged In (CBS). She has been featured as a “food expert” to recommend restaurants for Public Affairs (Peachtree TV) and hosted regional TV show, Dish Worth The Drive, when they explored the Athens, GA food scene (aired in 48 southeastern markets). Now Skye is Marketing and Media Manager for Taste of Atlanta, Atlanta’s largest food festival.

Working at Atlanta’s highly acclaimed fine dining establishments, Blue Ridge Grill and Bones, Jason gained invaluable knowledge and experience.
