Executive Chef at Hotel Ritz Carlton St Thomas
in Sarasota, FL

"I love the intensity and it does fulfill me as a person. The true reason why I am doing this job is the passion to please people with something as simple as food. The culinary art is something special to me and boils down to the very common reason which is the customer experience."

Executive Chef at Bella Vita
in New Castle, IN

"I love the fast pace and the action of being a Chef. I love being able to be creative and put something new and exciting on the table. I love to make someones' experience enjoyable by being able to provide an appealing dish in both appearance and taste. I love being in charge in a way to direct others in a way that they can learn from me. That is the great joy for me in food service. No matter one's experience or schooling level, there is always the opportunity to learn something new from anyone you come in contact with."
