Get to know me better
Culinary professional constantly seeking new challenges
I have been cooking professionally for eight years. I started my culinary career by studying at the Auguste Escoffier school of culinary arts in Austin, while I was attending I worked under Chef Cesideo D’Andrea at Artisan Bistro in Lakeway. After finishing Culinary school my wife and I decided to move to New York for personal and professional growth. During two years in New York I worked for Chef Harold Dieterle at his NYTimes 2* Thai restaurant Kin Shop and under Chef Anthony Sasso at Michelin 1* Casa Mono as well as staging for one month at Michelin 2* rated Atera. After returning to Austin I worked under Chef Todd Duplechan at Lenoir which was ranked as Austin’s #1 restaurant then as a Sous Chef at Barlata under Chef Daniel Olivella. Since the birth of my daughter I have been looking for a fresh challenge where I can share my knowledge and love of cooking with more flexibility to spend time with my young family.
For me, cooking is...
The most satisfying and fulfilling job inhvs ever had.
I learned to cook at...
I learned many techniques and ideas that I still practice at the Auguste Escoffier school of culinary arts but continue to learn every day.
A role model in the kitchen is...
I aspire to be as calm and confident as my good friends Anthony Sasso and Diego Moya.
A cooking secret...
Preparation for both execution as planned and also the inevitable deviations that will occur.
