I was born and raised in Chicago Illinois and at the early age of 17, I enlisted in the Army and completed an illustrious 10 year career as a 92 Golf (culinary specialist). Upon retirement from the Army, I enrolled in formal culinary school training, where I received a degree in baking and pastry. I’m currently working as a task force chef around the southeast for various food and wine festivals and utilizing my skills as a personal chef In Savannah, GA.
