Originally from New Orleans, I have lived in Houston most of my life, and over the years have developed a passion for cooking that is inspired by my southern heritage. There is nothing better than getting together with friends and family around a big pot of gumbo and letting the good times roll! I am thrilled to be able to do what I love for a living. I have over 20 years of cooking experience, and was trained in culinary theory and techniques by the Culinary Business Institute in Atlanta. I have been a member of the United States Personal Chef Association since 2003; and continually enjoy the support and professional affiliation of the nationwide membership of personal chefs.
