I was born and raised in Dorchester, Massachusetts. While my life has been met with a lot challenges some due to my upbringing and others because of my own decisions – today I stand as a testimony of God’s grace and mercy in my life. I was given a second chance at the age of 43 and because of that I have vowed to share my gift with the world and give back to the community.

I have obtained two culinary certificates, have gone to work for various establishments like Legal Seafood, The Sheraton Hotel, MIT as a supervisor, an Executive Sous-Chef at the John Hancock in Boston and Sous-Chef at Harvard University.

Throughout my career, I have always loved the art of combining different ingredients and flavors to make a dish as well as plating food in a way that was pleasing to the eye. People are always appreciative of the food I cook and the way I present on a plate to which my response is always “beautiful food for beautiful people”.

I am excited to bring 50Kitchen to Chapel Hill and give back to incredible community.
