Get to know me better

A guy who has been given a passion and purpose to love my life family, people and a gift for culinary

With a Portuguese father and Brazilian mother, I had grown up watching both my parents in the kitchen cooking their foods from home like anything with linguisa and my mom’s feijoada.

I wanted to become an executive chef while working at the Westin Century Plaza Hotel under Chef Raymond Hoffmeister. My pursuit of culinary perfection has taken me to the kitchens of France, Italy and back to my hometown of San Diego where I was able to learn from my mentor and renowned Italian Chef Roberto Bernadoni. I have been able to create many memorable experiences for delegates, celebrities, musicians and entrepreneurs as a private chef.

I served on the 2015 National Whole Grain Summit as the culinary chair and guest speaker. My most recent accolades are winning 2 American Culinary Federation silver medals at the flavors of the world challenge and the NACUFS challenge. I have been a guest chef on the daytime hit show ‘The Talk” on CBS as well as supporting and using my talents to various charities in the Los Angeles area like the 2014 Art of Elysium.I donate my time to local school programs in teaching future chefs the art of cooking and eating healthy.


I am currently working as a food and flavor consultant for various companies. I still keep my hands in food by serving as a personal and private chef to many clients both locally and abroad. I also partner with local bartenders and sommeliers to bring you a greater experience for your large event. I like to use certain tools such as my personal smoker and pizza oven when needed as well as making all my food from scratch.

Chef J..'s reviews

4.9/ 5

Chef J was incredible. He was on time, easy to talk to, and his food was perfectly delicious. He made the experience so enjoyable and was very engaging with my husband and I. We chose the Japanese menu and he was super flexible if we wanted to change anything. The meal was just amazing and exceeded expectations. It was the best ahi tuna I’ve ever had & this warm mushroom salad he makes is to die for. We will definitely be choosing him again on our next experience.

I brought Chef Jay in for a corporate retreat. He exceeded expectations. One of the things I appreciated about Chef Jay is all of his dishes were simple in concept. He took very traditional dishes and put his own stamp on them creating dishes that were memorable. All of the guest commented how the meals were not fussy or complex. Chef Jay added great flavors and components to the dishes that showed his talent and skill. He communicated well through the process.
