I was born in Agawam, MA and moved to the eastern part of the state to attend Merrimack College. I graduated in 2010 with a degree in Communications/Business Administration and realized I longed for a career in the restaurant industry. I have held every front of house position and decided it was time to try the back of house. I began my first chef position when I moved to Boston in 2011 and simultaneously enrolled in the Professional Pastry Program at the Cambridge School of Culinary Arts.
Moving to Boston was the best decision I ever made. I love this city– the food and drink scene, the sports, the people – pretty much everything except the parking. I collect old cookbooks, obscure cookie cutters and ramekins for dipping sauces.
Given the choice between a burger or a cupcake, I’d pick a burger – yet day in and day out I find myself in a pastry kitchen. Fact is, most people have a sweet tooth and I truly love creating desserts that make everyone’s lives sweeter.
