  • Private Chef

Welcome! After a long stint of menu developing and managing operations for a line of successful Los Angeles cafes, I started my own company offering my services to clients who need assistance with their food programs.

I have loved cooking my whole life and have been successful in my career as a professional chef. I have travelled the world and it is food that has gave me the greatest memories. I love to share those experiences through my food and my passion to innovate. I have my Bachelor's Degree in Political Science and International Studies and a Diploma in Culinary Arts, and both those educations have led me to be successful in my culinary endeavors. I also love to entertain and host a culinary experience, hospitality is a very important part of my being. I hope to get to know you soon!
