Originally from Los Angeles, I attended The Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York. After graduation in 2005, I moved to New York City and cooked at Danny Meyer's Union Square Cafe and Gramercy Tavern. Since then, I have worked as Personal/Private Chef in New York City, Los Angeles, and Silicon Valley for high profile and high net worth individuals.

I have also managed a boutique olive oil company in the Napa Valley and have contributed to multiple cookbooks and online publications.

I'm Santa Barbara and Los Angeles based, but enjoy working around the world!
