M / L

Meet Tommy!! Our food loving, creative Laner of the Week! Originally from New Jersey, Tommy has lived in NYC for the last 10 years. His passion is food! He's currently working in food styling and content creation. Sounds like a dream job! Whens he's not working on the Lane, you can find him in the kitchen, at a restaurant, or just day dreaming about his next culinary adventure! He married his true love this past September and added a fur baby (Monty) to their family recently! We love having this kind and passionate Laner on our team!

What do you like about Mustard Lane or just working events in general?

I love people! Mustard Lane has been a great way to meet people and work events that i get to talk... which i am also pretty good at!

When you're not on the Lane...what are you doing?!

Usually cooking! My husband and I love to entertain friends, which is great because I am constantly testing out recipes and trying new things. Extra mouths are always welcome at our house!

Favorite restaurant or food?

This is really tough! I'm in my Ramen phase right now but as it gets warmer, all I want is tacos... and mezcalitas!

What is one of your goals for 2022?

My goal is to continue learning and meeting new people! This new career path i have been taking on has been super rewarding so far, so I can't wait to see what's next!

Name a place you'd love to travel to. And why?!

Greece is high up there on the list but I also would love to travel to Mazatlan, Mexico, which is where my husband's family is from!

What's your favorite way to spend a day off?

If I'm not planning on cooking then I love a sunny day out in NYC. Start with window shopping, lunch in chinatown, a bike ride through the park, a cute dinner, finish with a play or a musical (no intermission prefferred) and in bed by 10!

Do you prefer podcasts or books? Favorite one?

Podcasts! I listen to The Daily, daily. But I also love true crime!

What's your hidden talent?!

My impression of Carrie Bradshaw catching a cab.

If you could have your dream job tomorrow, what would it be?

Working in recipe development for a cooking show or publication!

What's an essential part of your daily routine?

My morning walk with Monty!

What is your favorite family or friend tradition?

Holidays with family! Both my husband and I are very close to our families so we try to share the time with each family evenly!

What inspires you most?

My husband. The hardest working person I know.
