Trained in Scottsdale, AZ in 2007 @ The Arizona Culinary Institute. I spent the last 6 weeks of the program doing my internship @ Cafe Ponte in Clearwater, FL. working under Executive Chef/Owner Christopher Ponte who studied at the esteemed Le Cordon Bleu in Paris, France. After Chef Ponte graduated he was then hired as an apprentice at the famed Taillevent also in Paris. After the 6 weeks of the internship, Chef Ponte asked me to join his team! I worked @ Cafe Ponte for 3+ years learning the entire brigade. 

Then in 2010, a friend reached out asking if I wanted to take a sous chef position in Orlando, FL @ Dexter’s. I worked there as a sous chef planning, directing, and supervising the food preparation and cooking activities. As well as Quarterly and daily menu expansion, staff development, inventory management, and profitability focus.

In 2014, I moved back to my hometown of Winter Springs, FL taking a new position as chef de cuisine @ South + York working under Chef/Owner Edgar Cruz. Chef Cruz worked at the world-famous Gramercy Tavern cooking under Chef Tom Colicchio. 

Lastly joining the Jumpstart Productions team as executive chef doing Food Styling/Prep for multiple different culinary brands, creating demos, styling, and prepping for live television.
