About me

Eating is a necessity but cooking is an art. As a recent graduate of Culinary Arts Academy; I have learned to explore new ideas, creating dishes, being able to put them on a plate and loving every moment of it.
Passionate, dedication and desire are three qualities I would use for my culinary journey.
