I'm a private chef and caterer who sees cooking as an opportunity to make people happy. Farmers, fishermen, seasons, traditions, world travels, milestones - everything inspires me. Including my Filipina mother, who's a bona fide rock star in the food party biz. My pre-chef life in a corporate Borg ship honed my project management and customer satisfaction skills, things that translate directly to the experiences I want to create when I cook for people. Really, the only difference is that now I get to do what I love, and share it.
