My love of cooking started at home at an early age. While pursuing my culinary arts degree, I worked at RSVP Catering under Chef Marsha Townsend. Southwestern and Mexican cooking are my origins, although my experience, training and interest extend to many different cuisines and techniques, including baking and desserts.
My skills and passions also include fine dining, where I enjoy cooking with the finest ingredients, utilizing fresh herbs, vegetables and spices.
I use every opportunity to propel me to a higher level of proficiency in the food service industry. I am a chef from a strong catering background with extensive management skills. During my many years of working in the culinary field, I have enjoyed working with many different chefs from around the world. I excel in production and quality.
My professional experience is as a cook at The Butler and the Chef in San Francisco, CA, from 6/13 to 11/13.
