I have been a chef since 1999 and heavy involved in Mixed Martial Arts in Scandinavia for 8 years.

One of the most important and difficult lessons I've learned during this time is how to leverage ever-shrinking budgets to deliver great meals and the right info about MMA in the media and to the public.

Solutions have been created without compromising quality or integrity.

This area is not only where I excel as a ambassador for the sport ,but it is also the area I most enjoy.

I love to get results-whether it's keeping clients on time,on budget or within customer requirements.

If I am creating,develope or organizing and focusing a group of people,I am not only doing what comes naturally to me,I am also doing what I most enjoy

20 years professional catering, restaurant,Hotel and Personal/Private  cooking.
