Bren Herrera

Private Chef, Luxe Lifestylist & World Traveler
Bren Herrera is a multi-talented Renaissance artist with an endless passion for all things art. Bren is a professional singer/songwriter, classically trained cellist, self-taught chef and published writer, that, simply put, loves to entertain!

David aka the Culturist

David Hall, better known as Bren’s father, is responsible for Bren’s love affair with the world. He spoiled her the travel bug and does his own share of lusting the globe with his family. He’s an affectionate home cook, looking to expand his French connection in the kitchen, and a total wine snob.

Though 6 years apart, Jonathan and Bren have an incredible amount of lifestyle commonalties, mostly cycling and eating together. Most awesome is his ultra adventurous spirit, unafraid mojo and zest for globetrotting. He and his young wife have fallen in love with the friendly skies and have traveled out of the country 16 times since they married, in 2010.
