I was a late bloomer, it wasn’t until I was about 22-23yrs old when the industry took me in. I took some advice from a very close friend and went all in. I have always been creative with food and cooked whenever possible, now I get to do it for a living and couldn’t be happier!
What are your hobbies outside of the kitchen?
Living in Colorado lends to a plethora of outdoor hobbies, I partake in all of them. I am also an avid cookbook and food publication collector. Enjoying time with my wife and two sons is also a huge blast!!!
Everyone remembers their first encounter with burrata. What is yours?
Brasserie Ten Ten, Boulder, Colorado circa 2007(ish). I was unsure what the wet mess was on the cheese plate, a Sous chef handed me a piece of toast and told me to put some on…and the rest was history.
If you could make dinner for one person, who would it be?
My Father. He lived his best life until 2001.
What is your favorite dish to cook and why?
Roast Chicken. Simple bird preparations go a long way, pairs well with life and veggies.
What has been your greatest accomplishment as a chef?
Having the pleasure of teaching the young generation. I think it’s important to continue to grow the industry and not let the industry outgrow the talent.
If you could give a piece of advice to your younger self, what would it be?
Travel often and early. Experience other chefs as much as possible.
-Read, read often.
