Get to know me better
Traveling Chef specializing in Breakfast, Asian, Italian, American & Vegan.
I am a trained passionate chef and bartender.
I attended culinary school in Michigan and graduated in 2011. I dove right into the restaurant world, working virtually every position and discovering that restaurants didn't fulfill my passionate cooking style.
I continued my path in the restaurant industry serving drinks from behind the bar. A place I found my outgoing personality was perfect for. Accumulating regulars and booking private parties. I was able to grow my talents in the comfort of people's homes, I find joy in the trust people give me opening their doors. I finally found my place in the culinary world and I took my talents on the road.
December 2018 I sold everything I had and decided to travel the world. I put my skills to work cooking in private residences in New Zealand, Australia, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, El Salvador and now Costa Rica. I've learned a lot during my travels about cultures and how many different ways food and beverages can be manipulated.
Bartending is one of my favorite jobs, however, cooking is my passion, I love to have fun with it so it never feels like work.
For me, cooking is...
Theraputic. since I was. small child I would grab a stool and cozy up to my mom to help cook dinner. That passion has only grown bigger.

My mother is a huge inspiration to me, no matter how hard her day was she still always enjoyed cooking a beautiful meal every night for the family.
