Chef, Consultant & Kitchen Coach
When I was 13 years old, I made dinner for my parents for the first time. It was a tostada salad. But what I remember most is the feeling as they sat down and dug into that meal. I felt so much LOVE: love for my parents, the love that inspired me to cook for them, and the love they experienced as they enjoyed my dinner. The joy I felt was so palpable. I knew right then that this was something I had to do.
In my college years I learned quickly the impacts of a junk food diet as I went screaming (literally) to the hospital in the agony of passing a kidney stone. Turns out a diet of root beer and pizza is not as sustainable as I thought…
After studying at the Natural Gourmet Institute of Health and Culinary Arts in New York in 2004, I was a specialty chef for the Van’s Warped tour, I private cheffed for some of the biggest names in Hollywood, I founded and led the healthy LA-based meal delivery company, Wholesome2Go, for its first 8 years, and authored recipes for my own and others’ cookbooks, not least of which was that fateful collaboration with Margaret Floyd, which yielded two gorgeous girls, two cookbooks (the Naked Foods Cookbook and the Ultimate Immune Boosting Gummy Book), and a lot of lives transformed.
These days I support clients with customized recipes and meal plans based on their specific dietary requirements, I author recipes for functional medicine practitioners (most recently Dr. Alejandro Junger’s Clean7), I consult for restauranteurs, train home kitchen staff, destination private chef and I inspire and educate people to take control of their health through their kitchen by speaking and teaching throughout North America. If you’ve got a special diet you’re following and don’t know what to eat, I’m the one who will help you figure it out, and make the experience not only doable, but delicious.
