“I believe life is about being able to adapt. I was born in Haiti, but raised here. Miami is a mixture of different cultures and cuisines – if you’re not learning about other cultures than you aren’t enjoying the true potential this city has to offer. I started working as a prep cook in an Italian restaurant – you know, just a job to pay my bills. The chef taught me how to make fresh pasta, then how to operate the cold and hot stations. From there I just kept moving, learning as much as I can before discovering a new culture.”
