About this pro

I have been cooking since I was a little kid, helping my mom in the kitchen which helped start my career and led me to go to formal cooking school.  I am a graduate of the country's top culinary school, The Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY.  

I have over 30 years experience cooking and I learned so much over the years, I want the chance to give back especially to people that are passionate about food.  I have  cooked for 2 of our presidents throughout my career and have had many adventures in the kitchen.  

I am a laid back Chef with solid skills who makes cooking and learning fun.  

I have always been passionate about food and I love to see the smile you can put on someones face when they see and taste one of your creations.

I am a gradutae of the nations top culinary school, The Culinary Institute of america in Hyde Park, NY

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

I typically charge a starting rate of $25 per hour but the rate can be adjusted based on how many lessons needed and/or days booked. 

How did you get started teaching?

I have taught classes since 1997  when I sat on the board of Dekalb Technical school and taught classes to students for free who were leaning to having a career in Food Service and Culinary Arts as a chance to give back and enhance the lives of others.   I have also taught seniors over the years as well along with adults looking to learn how to cook.  

What types of students have you worked with?

I havew worked with students of all ages from young kids under 10 years old to seniors over 65.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I once created a menu that featured all the cuisines of the various countries that were in the World Cup of Soccer and featured it throughout the world cup in my restaurant.  This gave the customers a chance to see various small plates from many different countries and was fun to share with my customers.  

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Advice I would give, especially if you are looking to hire me, is be ready to have fun, but in a relaxed comfortable enviroment.  I can adapt to the student and connect with them for a great experience.  

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

What do they want to learn and what do they expect to get out of their cooking lesson.  In other words, what will they do with the knowledge going forward.
