Get to know me better
I try to create a story and memories through Personalized Culinary Experiences.
I became a “Chef” because I love what food and dining are all about. It was my grandma “Ya-Ya” who showed me so much love through food. The way a pot of her soup made me feel when I didn’t feel so good. Or the nostalgia of her freshly baked bread in the morning, reminding me how good life is. In those moments my memories are crystal clear.
I found my way working through high end hotels in Chicago, San Francisco, and San Diego after finishing culinary school. The Ritz-Carlton, Four Seasons, and Grand Del Mar Hotels allowed me to see the refined aspect of food and dining. Though I learned a lot about refinement in these establishments, I still felt a desire to translate that same emotion my grandmother gave me early on to people.
My true passion is the love of serving people in every aspect. I hope that I have the opportunity to serve you soon!
