How did you become a chef?
I almost attended culinary school after high school, but chose a journalism path instead. After competing in ABC’s “The Taste” in 2014, I made the career change.
What is your favorite thing about your job?
I love being my own boss – managing my schedule and creating menus.
What is your favorite food to cook in the winter?
French onion soup – it’s one of the best winter comfort foods!
What’s your favorite place in Boston?
As much as Boston has to offer, I prefer being home in front of my fireplace with my two bulldogs.
