I love the outdoors: camping, fishing and just being outside. I also love to cook, it has been a passion of mine since I was 8. I used to cook the family meals almost every night since then. My family is a big influence also. I love home-style food and plating. Comfort foods make people relax and enjoy themselves better. I have worked in all types of restaurants from industrial, fine dining, casino, high volume. My management experience is limited, but I am a strong leader and fine chef. I put my soul into every dish and my work reflects this. I cook because it's my life and passion. The ability to transform someone's palate, by experimenting with flavors is an awesome concept to try and excel in.
