I am pleased to say that this winter I will be back on the mountain with my telemark skis under me. My skis have been retired for over 10 years since being a competitive and sponsored telemark skier. This addition will be a nice enhancement to my wellness plan.

I support many professional organizations and causes.

Demonstration Chef Altoona

I enjoy the outdoors and focus on both my physical and mental well-being. I run 10-15 miles a week and enjoy various outdoor activities. In the summer, I like to take time to put in a trail ride on my mountain bike and enjoy the outdoors. During the winter, I enjoy gym time including circuit training and alternating days between swimming and running on the treadmill.

Corporate Chef Altoona

My entire life I have been driven and have overcome some high hurdles in order to stand the Chef and person that I am today. I am thankful for all of my experiences, both good and bad, as I know they all have allowed me to now relate on virtually any level, within any segment of society.

Consulting Chef Altoona

Being involved in the food and hospitality industry for the vast majority of my life, so much of what I do comes as second nature. My experiences ranging from personal chef to TV/movie catering chef, bartender to correctional food service specialist, pastry chef to sushi roller, Air Force National Guard Staff Sergeant to Assistant Professor of Culinary Arts & Hospitality have all lent to the development of this innate understanding of the food service industry.
