Get to know me better
Talented young chef who’s been in the industry for over 16 years
I’m a self taught Chef from New York. I moved to New Orleans to learn from the best and was the Sous Chef at the world famous Commanders Palace. I had the privilege to take part in cooking Miss Ella's daily meals until she sadly passed. I have moved back to my home town of Rochester to show them a bit of what only being a Chef in New Orleans can teach you. I am extremely passionate about what I do as being a Chef is the only career I’ve had. I have worked in various different environments in the industry from greasy spoon diners to the finest of dining. I have been in the industry for over 16 years & believe one can never stop growing and evolving.
For me cooking is passion with a dash of science and a creative outlet for my artistic abilities. My life. It is what I do every day and what I want to continue to do for the rest of my life.
