Soul Food

“I have been cooking my entire life, everybody in my family loves to cook so I learned early on how to have a passion and love for food.

My life was filled with homeless shelters, drugs, violence, and foster care. Through all of the sadness, food has been the one way I could find an outlet and find happiness. Making people happy through the food I create helps bring me happiness, which was a feeling I rarely felt growing up.

Being torn between becoming a pharmacist or becoming a chef I decided to pursue the thing that brought me the most happiness and went to culinary school. I graduated at the top of my class and to this day I continue to strive for perfection in the flavors and dishes that I create.”
