Get to know me better
Dedicated professional empowering foods that connecting communities.
I am a philadelphia local, who has been classically trained as a cook. My culinary adventure started around 6 years after when I got a job as a dishwasher at a french bistro. Since then I have continued to hone my skills, work with different ingredients, and develop my own style of cuisine.
Recently I started Stranger Fruits Culinary Practice, as a way for me to expand myself to beyond the kitchen. This company's focus is to educate and empower people with all the confidence of a michelin starred chef. We aim to connect people, food and whole communities over dinner tables.
For me, cooking is...
Cooking is the highest level of care you can show a person, we take raw elements and process them in a way to nourish our guest.
I learned to cook at...
Home as a small child, later at OIC and various food establishments around my city.
A role model in the kitchen is...
I don't have one, the only person I know is myself, and while I may be good today I strive to be better tomorrow
A cooking secret...
Complimentary flavor pairing and the heavy use of herbs!
