Get to know me better

A chef that is driven by nature and trying to highlight its hidden nuances

I am a professional Chef with 10 years of experience working in the top restaurants in Chicago and San Francisco, including Blackbird, Saison, Birdsong and Oriole. I am originally from North Carolina so my approach is very natural, hyper seasonal, and heavily influenced by open flame. My belief is that a unique experience through food brings people closer together and opens their eyes to new culinary possibilities.

Chef Shawn's reviews

4.9/ 5

Chef Shawn exceeded all of my expectations! Our dinner was a birthday surprise, so there was much riding on Shawn’s preparation and delivery. He was incredibly flexible and thoughtful with his menu, and every course was delicious. We had a few things that were new to us, that were just amazing. We typically always go out for a very nice dinner, especially for birthdays, however since we could not this year, Chef Shawn brought that dinner to us. We would certainly hire him again!
