I grew up on a farm outside of a small town in Ohio. Far be it from me to have wanted to cook “professionally” at a high level for as long as I could remember. Growing up for me was about being in the best possible position to obtain the coveted brownie batter spoon after mother was done baking. The Kitchen was always THE spot for all things good!
Fast forward through culinary school around age 20, flying by the seat of my pants I managed to create a few dishes that impressed the Chef at a small fine dining restaurant formerly located in Delaware, OH that is known for their upscale progressive cuisine. That is where everything changed for me. The Chef taught me how to learn, to follow passion - cooking through an artists lens, a means of expression. To that end, I am a part of the Chef's Table team to fulfill my ultimate dream of sharing, teaching, and curating experiences that will be remembered for a lifetime.
