Living in the paradise of Manuel Antonio,Costa Rica. I love to divide my life in 2. One side is my life as a chef and entrepeneur, which keeps driving to be better every passing day.Working under pressure, challenging myself in never be in a comfort zone. Where my creativity rises by trying to understanding the "Why" of the things.
My other side I like to call it "YOLO”. This is where I just Enjoy LIFE.... Surf,Bike, Hike, Kickbox,skate, Cliff Jumping, Oyster Hunting and so much more. Just laying in the grass watching the waves in sunset and being grateful for what we have and recharge energies. We need to find a balance in life, we live to be happy....
For me, cooking is...
My way of personal expression!, Where I can transmit my feelings and thoughts... Where I get lost through gastronomy, Cooking is 1000% passion.
