Creative spins on classic dishes
I have been cooking my whole life, I spent my late 20’s cooking for professional athletes, this led me to pursue cooking professionally. I have cooked through Central America, living in Costa Rica and Panama. I have been based in Vail the past few years, taking a year hiatus to Chicago to work in some Michelin starred restaurants & gain experience working for some incredible chefs. I spend time with The Alinea Group, working under Chef Grant Achatz at The Aviary & NEXT kitchens, I also worked under Top Chef Season 14 Champion Chef Joe Flamm at Michelin starred Spiaggia. During my year spent in Chicago, I also worked different events with chefs such as Stephanie Izard, Rick Bayless, Paul Kahan, Jaimie Bissonette & Akira Back. I am looking to take the experiences I have gained as a restaurant chef & put them to work cooking on a smaller scale for individuals as I prepare to open my own restaurant.
For me, cooking is...
a way to connect with people & tell my story through my food.
I learned to cook at...
a very young age, I was the youngest in a family of 6 & always had an appetite, my mom taught me to cook eggs when I was 3 & I havent’s stopped since.
A role model in the kitchen is...
Rick Bayless, I had the opportunity to work with him in Chicago & he embodies everything right in restaurants.
A cooking secret...
is to talk to myself, whether its aloud or in my mind, as long as that conversation is going, everything is going to be alright.
