Get to know me better

I captivated diners with spectacular and scrumptious dishes infused with vibrant creativity and joy

For over 18 years, I have captivated diners with spectacular and scrumptious dishes infused with vibrant creativity and a joyful spirit of adventure.

I have been around the kitchen since I was just a child. I graduated Le Cordon Bleu in 2002, and since then, I have played with all sorts of cuisines: from classic comfort American to far-east Asian cuisines. I have worked in a couple of incredible restaurants in Southern California such as Upstairs 2, JiRaff, Joe’s Restaurant ( Michilin one star), L’Orangerie, Mamash, and Ortolan (Michilin one star). I have become one of the elite chef features in Airbnb located in Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, Palm Spring, La Quinta, Indio & Palm Dessert. One of the most requested chef for Luxury Retreats and Amex Centurion club.

I take pride in surpassing client expectations with unmatched culinary artistry that enhances banquets, weddings, themed parties, and other events with exquisitely prepared high-end cuisine and inspired creativity.

My team and I have an extensive career, a casual open-minded personality, and a couple of great secrets of LA to share! The perfect recipe for a memorable experience around the table!
