Get to know me better
Creative and passionate about fresh flavours, Ontario products, food presentation and fine service.
I am a red seal chef, with 20+ years of professional experience. Though I've always loved to cook, it was travelling, exploring local markets and experiencing the different cuisines of fine chefs that lit my passion to pursue a career as a chef. I had been working in restaurants in Toronto when a fellow chef introduced me to the world of catering, and I never looked back. It has been a wonderful journey creating unique meals for each client, incorporating foods they enjoy, and introducing them to new dishes while they enjoy the experience of their meal being cooked fresh on site.

Cooking is an integral part of myself - it puts me in a happy and peaceful place
