My career in the world of creativity began when I moved to London from South Africa. London is a vibrant bustling place that opens all your senses, I fell in love with the depth of Europe, the idea that the world was an open space of anonymity and creativity. I ventured into fabric design and fashion.  The world of creating was open,  I could be all I needed to be.

After 10 incredible years, I moved and settled in the USA, a place I now call home, a place I have planted roots with the family and my forever love of food. I have always been comfortable in the kitchen, but it was here that I fully committed to my calling of the culinary arts. Feeding people is a way of giving of yourself, its intimate, and kind –  I flew all over the US to learn from industry experts. I found an old book on the art of creating art with food – which ignited a passion for me, elevating creating and serving that  helps me be mindful and stay grounded in the creativity. But also speaks to enhancing someones experience.
