“I never went to culinary school, I studied music – though I have always been involved in the arts in one form or another.

Music and cooking both share similar characteristics, the different colors that go onto the plates, the fact that you can do a thousand different things with a single ingredient, the fine touches that elevate plates. It is what’s kept me cooking for over a decade, always finding myself back in kitchens because there is endless creativity.⁠

We are making magic with fire. It can get rough with the stress and low incomes, but it is the adrenaline and ever-changing environment that makes it beautiful and worth it.⁠”
