Culinary arts, to me, is everything. Culinary arts is more than just a career; it is life.
It is self expression at its best. Cooking is the greatest way that you can truly show a person what you are all about. With each dish that I create, I put a piece of me onto the plate. My passion and love for culinary arts is revealed in each and every item I create; when you see my work you see me.
In my10 years of cooking, I consistently excel in all kitchen atmospheres including front of the house, banquet preparation & execution, and catering. Additionally, I have worked a variety of shifts and perfected a variety of techniques. My cuisine specialties are Southern or Low Country (United States), Mediterranean, and Italian. In my current position, I am often referred to as a rounds man. By remaining flexible, consistent and willing to do what it takes to get the job done my colleagues and supervisors recognize the skill and professionalism that I bring to the kitchen. As such, I am experienced in all facets of the kitchen and consistently performed the duties above expectations.
During my college years at Winston-Salem State University, I majored in Business and began coursework to develop my business skills. After Winston-Salem State, I returned to Charlotte, and attended the Art Institute of Charlotte, where I majored in Culinary Arts. After the Art Institute, I began my culinary career working for many different restaurants and establishments all while developing and honing my culinary skills.
I have put together this package to show you who I am through my work.
