Get to know me better
I bring to you creative flavors, amazing textures, fantastic smells, and satiated bellies!
I am a professional chef that has been honing my skills and craft for nearly 20 years. Most recently, I stepped down from my post running the kitchen as Chef at Mountain Standard Restaurant in Vail, CO. I have trained in some of the finest and funnest kitchens that not only Colorado has to offer, but also Atlanta, in my home state of Georgia. I am a creative chef, whom, while having a great respect for cooking traditions, enjoys challenging said traditions to bring exciting new flavors, textures and smells to your palate!
For me, cooking is...
about family and friends, creating amazing memories that happen to revolve around food!
I learned to cook at...
I have focused much of my career working for award-winning, forward thinking chefs who have taught me the secrets of FLAVOR!
A role model in the kitchen is...
Linton Hopkins, of Restaurant Eugene and Holeman&Finch in Atlanta. He taught me what cooking locally is all about.
A cooking secret...
Allowing an ingredients own flavors to SHINE, while creating balance in a dish.
As a Private Chef, I can offer you:
Simply tell me what you're craving! I would love to create the perfect menu for your special occasion in Vail.
I can do weddings, birthdays and corporate events in Vail. You name it!
A longer stay in Vail? I'm available for holidays, on a daily basis, and so forth. Just let me know!
Because "sharing is caring". I would be happy to teach you all sorts of techniques and recipes in Vail.
