E.J. Williams is a poet and restaurateur based out of Western NY. (She received her MBA from Purdue University Krannert School of Business and an International MBA from Tias School Of Business in the Netherlands.) She is a global wanderer with a deep love for used books and the magic of a handwritten letter. She prefers animals to humans and bourbon to beer. She can most often be found running around restaurants with a notebook in her pocket & a pen in her hair. She wrote her first poem at age 9 and waited her first table at 16. She's done everything from bus to bartend and is now currently managing a full service restaurant/bar and a banquet & catering company with her owner brother, Brian.
