About Me

You caught me red handed…in the kitchen of course! Do you blame me if I’m totally, and obsessively in love with the place?  Good news is, I’ve been busy concocting a handful plus recipes that I’m eager to share with you.

In case you wanted to know a thing or two more about me, you should know I have a bizarre obsession, borderline addiction for collecting kitchen props.  I have a terribly large collection of spices that never seems to end. I get an incredible high from pairing new flavors, and get drunk from creating a new dish. Real life, true story.

I was part of CKCA (the Center for Kosher Culinary Arts) graduating class of fall ‘14. My certificate in Culinary Arts is hanging on the wall next to all my favorite other things.

I’m passionate about creating soul food by using an abundance of fresh herbs, green leafy vegetables, and real, authentic flavors.  While I love eating healthy, there is always room for indulgence.

I’m passionate about food transparency, and I think ambling through a farmers market is a great way to spend an afternoon.

My life as a personal chef has given me some of my most memorable moments, landed me in some of the most beautiful locations, and has given me the privilege of meeting people from all walks of life. I feel blessed that I can view my career as a reward.
