Get to know me better
I am a professional chef with a smiley face.
I was born and raised on the Italian coasts of the Adriatic sea, in the region of Le Marche. My grandmother and father's passion for gastronomy have greatly influenced my path in life and gave me the privilege of in-house training since I was young.
With an eagerness to learn and experience gastronomy on a global level, I left Italy after my studies and traveled through Europe, the United States and Latin America with the pleasure of working with several renowned culinary Masters that resulted in perfecting my craft.
My culinary adventures have led me here to St. Barth. This island is where I call home and where my passion becomes my living. Experience Cibum - a private chef service with the goal to deliver to you a unique gastronomical environment that will excite your mind and satisfy your palate.
