My cooking journey began at age 11 and it was my dream to be a chef.
At age 19 I enrolled in the Natural Epicurean Academy of Culinary Arts and began working at Casa de Luz as a prep cooking and later a lead cook and manager. I learned so much but quickly realized restaurant work was not for me. My teacher recommended being a personal chef as she noticed how attentive I was to customer’s dietary preferences.
In 2005 I began private cheffing and have continued ever since.
I am particular about my food and find it very rewarding to provide someone else with cuisine just for them.
I offer a wide range of abilities and particularly enjoy international cuisine. My dishes always have lots of different vegetables offering meals outside the general scope of restaurants.
While I can provide healthier versions of traditional recipes, I also bring experience in the following areas:
Gluten free, Corn free, Soy free, No salt, No sugar, Elimination Diets, Fodmap, Macrobiotic etc. If I am unfamiliar with a particular diet I am a quick study.
