The way I got started in this industry was by accident, I was looking to switch careers and ended up in a kitchen. I always loved food, but I never knew how much I would enjoy cooking and being creative through what we eat. 7 years later, and I love it.

Making people happy and sparking a memory for someone through a dish that I create translates to more than just eating but an experience in itself. I believe that making a connection with people through food and creativity is what has kept me pushing to always learn more.

Consistency is key, a wise chef once said. But it’s the truth. Without it, then what is the point of what we do. A dish can’t taste great today and bad tomorrow. You would lose your integrity. Most importantly, stay humble, be true and always stay in the trenches.
