Life is a combination of magic and pasta.Federico Fellini
Hailing from Los Angeles, Clarisse journeyed up to the Bay Area for love, but stayed for the food, enticed by the Bay Area culinary scene and its proximity to wine country. Good food and conversation are her love languages and she has found that the two often go hand in hand.
Prior to joining af&co., Clarisse focused on building brands from a public relations point-of-view, specifically through the lens of celebrities and influencers from rising stars to A-list celebrities including Julia Roberts, Yara Shahidi, Kendall Jenner, Mary J. Blige, Michelle Obama and more. Her expertise spans from restaurant openings to brand ambassadorships, touching global brands including UGG, Charlotte Tilbury, Topshop/Topman, Grand Marnier and more.
Outside of the office, Clarisse is often found daytripping to Napa, binging the Food Network, or spending time with her cavapoo, Ollie. That is, when she’s not daydreaming of eating and drinking her way through Italy à la Bobby Flay and Giada De Laurentiis.
