I graduated from culinary school in 1998 and have worked professionally since 1997. While working at Hornblower Cruises and Events I was able to hone my catering skills which have been an essential part of my personal chef business. My fine dining credits come from two established San Diego classics: Le Fountainbleu at the renowned Westgate Hotel, and the Bradley-Ogden-inspired menus of Bertrand at Mr. A’s. I’ve been a personal chef since 2002 and am still loving it.
I’m a fifth generation San Diegan and spent five years in the San Francisco Bay area. I appreciate everything San Diego has to offer and I’ve enjoyed watching it’s food culture grow year by year. I’ve always loved my job, but when I’m not doing that, I’m with family and friends; eating, drinking and being merry…usually outside somewhere.
