Get to know me better

A creative and enthusiastic chef with a strong belief in the adage "You are what you eat"

I have held senior positions in the Hospitality Industry for over 10 years. I am a creative, enthusiastic, hardworking chef with a true passion for food, experienced in functions, a la carte, 5-star catering for individual clients, and also supervising apprentices. In addition, in my current place of work I create tailor made recipes for clients, give cooking demonstrations, lessons and farmer's market tours. I am knowledgeable in a variety of cuisines and dietary restrictions such as gluten-free, diabetic, raw foods and paleo and have developed tailored recipes for my clients. I am extremely skilled at putting my own stamp on traditional dishes, creating new combinations and experimenting with new flavours while being careful not to compromise the freshness and originality of the food I prepare.

My recipe development experience encompasses the creation of a line of vegan confectionery for “Byron Bay Sweets” such as gummies, caramels, chocolates and lollipops. I am currently developing and producing all natural hot sauces for “Hellish Sauces” with ingredients sourced from local suppliers.

My qualifications are: Certificate III/1V in Commercial Cookery, an Advanced Diploma in Hospitality Management, Food Safety Supervisor Certificate, NSW/QLD RSA and a current First Aid Certificate
