My History

I was born and raised in Chapel Hill, NC. Upon graduating High School, I went to college and obtained an Associate Degree in Mechanical Drafting & Design. Afterwards I entered the US Army as a 13B cannon crew member in Field Artillery and retired with the rank of First Sergeant after 26 great years of service. Because of my love of cooking, I went to Culinary Arts School to expand my knowledge of the food industry and learn the art of preparing, cooking and presenting wonderful meals. Since then I have enjoyed creating new dishes and putting twists on traditional dishes. I love cooking with a passion and I've been blessed by God with this gift of cooking and being able to have others to experience.  "A Chef must think like a SCIENTIST, organize like an ACCOUNTANT, inspire & motivate like a WARRIOR, move like a TRACKSTAR, plate like an ARTIST, and cook like a GRANDMA!" I believe you must have a VISION in life because without one, you will never move forward.
