My name is Gina Lorubbio,

 

and I’m an artist, strategist, and good food advocate. I’ve held jobs across the food system: line cook at a trattoria, milk tasting slinger for a revolutionary dairy, food system documenter for a nationwide guide, resource developer for food job seekers, and traveling volunteer on farms and in kitchens.

I hold a degree in Interior Design from the University of Cincinnati, where I learned about placemaking, creative problem solving, and visual communication. For the past 5 years, I’ve nudged social movements forward as a brand strategist with organizations like Green Rising Marketing and Wayfinding Academy.

I apply all of this to American Heirloom Project, where I use writing and art to help us all be a part of creating a resilient food culture we’re proud to pass down.  


with that being said...

This isn't about me. This is about all of us learning and building something together. I see myself as a student and curator, listening to what is happening in the world and providing a platform for all kinds of people to share their voices. If you have a story to tell about food, I'd love to meet you in person or on Skype over a cup of tea. Send me an email to start the conversation. 


“Gina cares. It runs deep. There was passion there and it made me dig deeper into my relationship with food.”
