Get to know me better
I believe culture, passion, and having a personal connection to the ingredients create the best food.
Raised in the city of New Orleans, I’ve been exposed to a multicultural food
scene at an early age while also learning the traditional Creole/ Cajun cuisine
the city is known for; it one of the only few places in the U.S. with a cuisine
unique to the area. Though my professional training came later in my career,
I’ve worked in kitchen settings ranging from bistro to major banquet halls;
even leading kitchen lines that have seated over 200 covers a night. After
graduating culinary school, I’d began working more in management areas
leading to my position as Sous Chef in multiple kitchens. In recent years I’ve
obtained unique training and experience which includes: completing a highly
coveted culinary internship in Rome, working in the resort/hotel industry in
Aspen/Snowmass, and most recently on Martha’s Vineyard as a Sous/Private
Chef for an exclusive clientele list. In between work, I travel
to experience, while living there, authentic food and culture around the world
different but unique from my own. I’ve spent time in places expanding to:
Australia, SE Asia, and extensively different regions of Italy. With over a decade
years of professional culinary experience, in and outside of the United States,
I've been able to develop and hone skills unique to most; bring a refreshing perspective to kitchens I work in.
For me, cooking is...
My passion. What I do when I'm happy and to cheer myself up when I'm down. Sharing with others by teaching them or tasting my food is what cooking is.
I learned to cook at...
My family's kitchen, working in restaurants before attending culinary school (Culinard) and earned an internship at American Academy in Rome.
A role model in the kitchen is...
A mixture of Emeril, Bourdain, Martha Stewart, and every bada** woman chef I've worked with over the years.
A cooking secret...
Making sure each ingredient in every dish plays an important role and always putting my heart into everything I cook.
