Daina shares that her married life isn’t much different than before but things are going well. She tells the story how she really started her sports and food love in the womb as her parents were in Europe with some of her dad’s clients and her mom was pregnant.

She played soccer and mostly tennis growing up but her high school was not a big sports oriented high school and she wanted to experience a true sports fan environment so she applied to one school – Duke and became a devoted Cameron Crazy.

Her dad, David Falk, gave her advice not to follow his footsteps by becoming a sports agent and she took his advice but wanted to continue with a career in sports.  Her love for food and sports lead her to create and found Hungry Fan.

This led to her publishing her first cookbook, The Hungry Fan’s GameDay Cookbook which incorporates many of her own recipes with contributions from many of the biggest names in sports today.

Sports for her has been a way for her to connect with people across the US and she truly believes she has a connection or some in common with everyone.  Her words of wisdom: No just means not at this time.
