My passion for cooking started when I was introduced to gourmet cooking while working in fine-dining restaurants, where I was given the opportunity to witness the chef's creations. I marveled at the culinary works of art they made, and at the delicious flavors and aromas their food produced. Learning from the chefs stirred a passion inside of me.
I began to study the art of cooking, reading through cookbooks like they were novels. I found a real joy with being in a kitchen, preparing meals for my family and friends.
I decided to pursue a career in the personal chef field. I attended and graduated from the Culinary Business Academy in Phoenix, Arizona as a personal chef, and became a member of the United States Personal Chef Association (USPCA). My client base is in the Columbus and Delaware areas. The common thread among all my clients is that they are tired of eating out all the time, spending a ridiculous amount of money on fast-food and pizza, and they want healthier meals at home. My cooking specialty has become heart-healthy foods. My joy is in preparing meals for my clients, knowing that I'm helping to contribute to their overall health, and that I'm helping to bring them back home for dinners.
