Eight years resturant experience with five years in from scratch kitchens. Very focused on the quality of food and the plating. Comfortable in fast paced atmospheres and excellent at multitasking. Memorize recipes with ease. I personally like working with big cuts of meat and making sauces. I worked for Chef Chip Roman for one year at Mica before going to White dog café. At White dog café I worked as a line cook for a year and a half before getting promoted to Sous Chef. I then went to Alla Spina in which i worked as a line cook then was promoted to sous chef. I am looking to be apart of a smaller restuarant and to cook more inspiring food. As a cook I feel that I am very technical about getting the best flavors and textures out of the food that I cook. Contemporary American cuisine is defiantly my cooking style. Lately I have been playing around with different cures, brines, smoking and fermentations. I would love to get in to doing more charcuterie and dehydrations. As of right now i am looking for a sous chef position in a restaurant that i know i can grow in and stay at for a long time.
