Former academic director for the famed French culinary school- Le Cordon Bleu, proves I've earned considerable experience in my industry. I also work extensively teaching others how to eat and live better through the medium of cooking. I have appeared in a variety of media outlets including, Radio Disney and Bay Area local television broadcast with Spencer Christian, on NBC’s “View from the Bay” and CBS, “Eye on the Bay”. I adore specializing in intimate gatherings, and work discreetly with many high profile clients.

Recently authored, "Food Fight- for Parents of Picky Eaters", while coaching families how to shop, prep and cook healthier- faster. Pen on my latest book,  "Cook Outside the Box"- supporting my hands-on educational series. I teach to individuals who are invested in eating clean, and foods free from artificial ingredients and shelf stabilizers. I am a contributing food writer for: Urban Gardeners Republic Magazine, Consumers Health Digest, and 30 Seconds Chicago, where I share recipes, and tips from the kitchen.

In my spare time, I keeps bees, raise chickens, and try to grow as much of my own herbs and vegetables as possible.

I am constantly challenged while making coffee and rice-- but working on it.

  I adore the art of cuisine and plating, I find myself in my most tranquil, creative space there.

I am influenced by the art of culinary science and flavor. Consistently pursuing new culinary methods, applications, while striving to preserve techniques I've mastered.

Food science captivates me constantly.  How food structures work, how we can apply the mastery of what we know to our flow, and create new delicious artistic creations, or deepening the classics. I believe eliciting time, temperature, colors, and combinations, while executing clean flavor layering. An art form all culinary professionals work towards.

Through understanding the science behind cooking and flavor, sprinkled with with a solid practicum of technique; I believe you can master any cuisine. 

This is a fun video of a technique I use. Fluid gels are fun plate-paint applications.
