My Story


Charlotte’s Most Comprehensive Personal Chef Services

I’m proud to offer Queen City’s most comprehensive personal chef services, including private dining/dinner parties, personalized weekly meal delivery, and hands-on cooking classes for those trying to up their food game.

My Cooking Philosophy

My cooking philosophy is simple: healthy eating can, and should, be delicious and satisfying. My signature cooking style combines classical culinary training with my down-home upbringing to create nourishing, satisfying food packed with flavor.

Some of the chef-prepared meals I make for my clients range from Paleo, autoimmune-friendly, vegetarian, vegan to high-performance diets.

Over the years, I’ve been privileged to call myself a personal chef to professional athletes like Thomas Davis of the Carolina Panthers, Lance Stephenson of the LA Clippers, and even catered tours for global popstars like Justin Bieber and Chris Daughtry.

My Mission

Whether cooking for an individual or groups of five to 5,000, transforming quality ingredients into delicious, vibrant flavors that exceed expectations is always my goal.

How It All Started…

I grew up working in my family’s renowned Kansas City BBQ joint – the kitchen is where I always felt most at home. To me, it represents passion, creative freedom, and family.

After high school, I did what so many young people do: explore a variety of paths – eventually becoming a successful financial executive within the mortgage industry.  Although grateful for my journey and everything I had learned, I was hungry for more.

In 2009, I took a leap of faith and enrolled at Le Cordon Bleu in Pasadena, California. It was during this time that I developed my signature style.

Over the years, I have been blessed to work alongside some of this generation’s most well-respected chefs, including Emeril Lagasse at e2 Emeril’s Eatery and Wolfgang Puck at Wolfgang Puck Pizza Bar in Charlotte, North Carolina – a thriving community I love and the place my family and I  currently call home.

Now I feel blessed to have my own personal chef company that I get to pour my heart and soul into every day. Ready to have me cook for you?
