Jason Franey

Executive Chef at Juniper and Ivy

I'm constantly learning, doing research, practicing, failing and being inspired by so many things, like the changing of the seasons. It never gets old.

Communication is something I learned the hard way - How and when to say things at the right time.
"Never give up if you want it. It will happen." - Chef Daniel Humm
I wish I had known 10 years ago that patience is a virtue.
From my first job I learned to never compromise or waver when it comes to your standards.
