New Orleans, Louisiana, United States
Growing up on the Gulf Coast I was spoiled with seafood and Southern hospitality... There's just something about watching your grandfather catch dinner with a string that makes it so damn delicious!
Food to me is an experience. When I recall trips I've taken, I remember what I ate more than the sites I saw. The interactions with my servers, stumbling to order in a language my tongue physically can't form, is way more personal than shuffling into the Louvre with the masses (in my opinion)
Once I realized not everyone shares the passion for the flavors, combinations, and opportunities that the culinary world promises... I decided to pursue it as my career.
After attending culinary school in Austin, TX and working for a wildly successful San Francisco catering company, I am now obtaining my MBA from Tulane in the hopes of shaping my passion for this field and creating grand experiences for others to enjoy as well.
