Chef & Owner of The Alinea Group
“The restaurant industry is exciting, dynamic and ever changing. It became clear to me at a young age that in order to be successful, like in most things in life, it requires an immense amount of dedication, patience, study and practice. A chef I once worked for said to me: “it is a marathon, not a sprint" and as I continue on with my career this seems to become more and more true.„
