Life is a combination of magic and pasta.Federico Fellini
Kendra Larkin grew up in the wine country outside of Temecula, California by a nature conservation and spent her days riding horses, hiking and reading every book in sight. After high school, she left the mountains behind and moved to the big apple. She attended New York University and graduated with a degree in Media & Communications and a minor in Mandarin Chinese before starting her career in luxury fashion and marketing in Manhattan. She produced official New York Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week runway shows, and developed marketing initiatives with brands like Condé Nast Shanghai, WhoWhatWear, Monique Pean, Pamela Love and more.
After launching successful womenswear and jewelry brands both nationally and abroad, Kendra returned home to the West coast and attended graduate school at Hult International Business School. Although an MBA program brought her to San Francisco, the inspiring and creative food and wine scene kept her here. Working at AF&Co gives her the opportunity to blend her passion of supporting entrepreneurs and international cuisine. Her love of launching boutique businesses prepared her well for a fast-paced career in food and hospitality.
Since the age of 15 Kendra has been traveling throughout the world seeking the best food, wine and art. She’s always happy to share her recommendation list for hotels, restaurants and scenic views. She also loves photography, reading, aperol spritz season and science fiction movies! So make sure you talk to her about aliens and other dimensions.
