Cooking is in my blood.

At a young age, I wanted to know how things worked, how to break them apart and rebuild them. This natural drive and curiosity spurred my desire to explore art, more specifically, sculpting. Through this medium, I learned the creative process and how to manipulate a raw ingredient into something I could truly identify with.

 

As I grew, I adapted my creative talents to the kitchen, shifting my medium of choice to food, instead of clay. Now, three decades later I have mastered many skills, but I'm always hungry to learn more...

food is art.

I’ve had the great opportunity to work with Chef Chris Aquilino several times over just the last couple of years and he is one of those guys that immediately I want on my team. He is professional, has integrity and is very kind. I’ve been fortunate to share stories over dinner and so happy to call Chris my friend.
