The essence of my cuisine is the accumulation of over 30 years of culinary experience that has encompassed restaurant, hotel, catering, personal chef, entertainment events, film production, and professional sports. I have worked for a multitude of high profile clientele including celebrities, athletes, dignitaries, royal families, entertainment and music moguls.
As a personal chef I worked for four years for recording artist, Mary J. Blige. I have traveled on three-world tours with Ms. Blige and have been on location at both her bi-coastal residences. The scope of work has included buying product, overseeing inventory and equipment, designing catering menus for entertainment and collaborating with her personal trainer, Mark Jenkins, to create flavorful and exciting menus that adhere to the strict dietary guidelines necessary to keep Ms. Blige in shape and energized on her tours.
My other personal celebrity clients include: Legendary baseball great Gary Sheffield of the New York Mets. R&B superstar Keyshia Cole, Cavaliers basketball star Daniel “Boobie” Gibson, Mega Music Producer Rick Rubin, Movie Producer Shakim, Compari, Actress Halle Berry and comedy genius Jim Carrey.
