Our Team

Our team spends pretty much 24/7 scouring Northern California for unique makers and their products to offer for delivery to your doorstep! 

Gibson Thomas

Founder and Curator-in-Chief, Bay Area Doorstep Market

Gibson grew up in the South, where she learned the power of lovingly prepared foods and bringing people together around the table at an early age. After an extended detour as a business attorney, Gibson came home to her passion for good food and drink, and the artisans who produce it, as the leader of the Marin County, CA, convivium of Slow Food. She founded Edible Marin & Wine Country magazine in 2009, with a mission of telling the stories of the extraordinary farmers, ranchers, cheesemakers and other food and drink artisans in Marin, Napa and Sonoma counties. She is thrilled and grateful to be at the helm of Bay Area Doorstep Market, offering those folks, and other artisan makers throughout Northern California, a robust community and direct-to-consumer marketplace. 

Stephanie Amberg

Marketing Manager, Bay Area Doorstep Market

Born in San Francisco and raised in Marin County, Stephanie has had a lifelong love affair with the region and its edible bounty. After a stint in Paris, she returned to the Bay Area with a master's degree in global communications and an enriched understanding of taste, terroir and marketing. She is the founder of Décanteur Media, a boutique digital marketing agency serving the Bay Area's food, beverage & hospitality industry, and a contributor to Edible Marin & Wine Country.

Jennifer Solow

Founder, Brand Diva, Hudson River Doorstep Market Founder

Jennifer Solow is a lifelong creative force. After graduating from RISD, Jennifer pursued a career in Advertising, where she won a Gold Lion, was named one of New York’s Young Guns by the Art Director’s Club and collaborated with creative luminaries like Spike Jonze, Spike Lee and Terry Richardson. In 2001, Jennifer performed a full life reset to pursue her truest creative passions: writing and the food world. Jennifer is a bestselling novelist and the publisher three Edible magazines. When the brutal reality of COVID descended, Jennifer had a vision for how to help the Makers in her Hudson Valley community connect with the large Edible audience who holds them dear. That vision became Doorstep Market. Jennifer is a mom (and stepmom) to four amazing adults and one very large kitchen garden at her farmstead in the bucolic hills of Columbia County, NY.

Tom Jacoby

Founder, The Business Guy, Hudson River Doorstep Market Founder

Tommy’s love of the Hudson River runs as deep and true as if the place itself was his family. An accomplished businessman, Tommy drives home to East Chatham and changes from his business suit to Carhartts as fast as possible. Tommy was raised in Columbia County, and while he’s lived in many places over the course of his life, he has always come home to these sacred lands. Along with his wife (see above), he was a founding contributor to the Berkeley Food Institute. Tommy has many hobbies and interests but perhaps his proudest moment was pulling in the 9500 pound class on a ’54 Case in the Columbia County Fair.

Jonathan Taee

Founder, Chief Technology Officer, Hudson River Doorstep Market Founder

Jonathan ended up in the Hudson River because he fell in love with a farmer. His wife owns and operates Ironwood Farm, and now he finds his house full of kids, mud and organic vegetables, and his table surrounded by a beautiful community of Hudson River families. When he’s not cooking, he’s running his digital agency Rhizome Consulting, assisting in the operation of Edible Hudson Valley, and now enjoying the rewarding work at Doorstep Market. He built this website and most of the mechanics that make it tick. He is excited to help connect the Hudson River incredible Makers with an expansive audience.
