"I love meeting passionate students who really want to learn and push themselves. I really enjoy helping them get a grasp on the science and techniques in Baking & Pastry. Many of my former students stay in touch with me and keep me updated on how they're doing in this field, and it's just an awesome feeling to see them succeed."

Aside from being a Pastry Chef I am also an audio engineer, DJ/producer, and run my own record label. I also play guitar, bass, drums, and piano, so it’s safe to say that music is definitely a passion of mine.
