Born 1979 Raised Greenville, OH

Education The Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY.

Career turning point “Most of my training had been French. But at Brasa, I discovered a new way of cooking: wood grilling, wood-oven roasting.”

Favorite kitchen tool A calculator. “We use whole animals, so if I make sausages, I need to adapt proportions.”

Won Best New Chef at: A16 and SPQR, San Francisco, CA
