Get to know me better
I am a husband, a son, a father, and a chef. Forever learning and growing, I truly love what I do.
I am a passionate young chef, originally born in Canada, I moved here with my kiwi wife and our twin daughters. Since moving to New Zealand I have found my place in the hospitality industry here as a passionate, creative, & fun head chef. I pride myself in creating beautiful experiences through food and dinning experiences. I started cooking with my father in his restaraunt when I was 12, and since travelled all over the world, forever learning and expanding my perspective on the industry. I currently am the head chef at a fine dinning restaraunt in the wairarapa, and would love the opportunity to share what I love with more people in the community.
For me, cooking is...
My way of bringing people together, and focusing on what really matters, food, friends, and family.
I learned to cook at...
Passionately in my mothers kitchen, professionally my fathers restaraunt, and French trained at one of the largest hospitality schools in Canada.
