Stephen launched Whetstone Magazine as an outlet to explore food as a “means of better understanding humans and the world,” in 2017. 

“We believe that diversity isn’t just noteworthy, it’s what makes our work so essential. When the gatekeepers are diverse, so too are the stories, its tellers and their experiences. This diversity accelerates our collective knowledge and empathy. Whetstone is unequivocally and gratefully a better company because of it” - Whetstone Magazine

A little over a year later, in December 2018, the writer founded Whetstone Media, a multi-platform, multimedia company aimed at producing original and commissioned content surrounding the story of food.

In August 2018, Whetstone Media partnered with iHeartRadio aiming to produce a podcast about the world of food. This led to the launching of ‘Point of Origin,’ an audio adaptation of Whetstone Media’s print magazine, where their contents are adapted for radio.

Gabriella has also posted pictures of them together several times on her Instagram. In one of the posts, they were pictured in a picnic and she wrote, “Happy Loving Day, Love. Ours truly one for the books.” 


Stephen is not shy to show off his love for Gabriella as well. In a rare picture he posted of them, he hinted at how they were mostly enjoying their time together rather than capturing it.

His caption said, “She be like, Why we never take pictures? I say it’s cuz we stay making memories. Let the record show we was fitted and blissed. Besos y pesos. Punctured the shell of hell and expelled ourselves. Nomads. Less so intellectually, more so emphatically somatically. Te quiero bebé.”
