I'm a Culinary Institute of America graduate and Certified Executive Chef.  I worked in New York City before moving to Arizona 20 years ago.  One evening back in 2006 I had an epiphany....I wanted to continue to cook professionally, but on my own terms.  I resigned and entered into the world of a Personal Chef.

I have cooked and worked with such celebrities as Donald Trump, Jackie O, Margaret Thatcher, Muhammad Ali, Jamie Lee Curtis, Telly Savalis & Peter Falk, David Yurman & Koelle Simpson
