About this pro

I stand out first cause I am a people person. However, the most important part is I graduated the top of 4 classes at Le Cordon Bleu with the highest honors possable. I am also a chef in the industry. I am not just a home cook. I am also considered a unicorn in the industry because I am proficient in both savory and sweet. I also was the executive resident chef for Sur La Table where I taught classes and private events with 2 - 50 students at a time. 

I love when my students eyes light up, when they have that moment, that they know they can do it. I also love when they are so proud of their new skills that they want to show their friends.
