Stuff About Me:

Although the honor of chef is not in my repertoire of many talents, I do share a passion for palate pleasure that begins in my home and extends to family, friends, and students. 

As an educator in schools that are socio-economically challenged, I embrace opportunities to bring food into the classroom to elicit epiphanies for under exposed students.  C-CAP offers the added benefit of making culinary careers accessible for similarly challenged students - and that excites me at the thought of their passion-filled possibilities!

Whether speaking to audiences or writing for blog readers, I encourage as many enthusiasts as I can to catch their dreams - not chasing elusively those which are fleeting - but pursuing those that are attainable, by making and following through on an actionable plan.  C-CAP makes such dreams a reality. 

Chef Extraordinaire, Marcus Samuelsson has crafted a beautiful narrative that illustrates his powerful journey via cuisine.  How honorable to pour back into the organization that infused his future with promise and prowess. 

It is an honor for me to combine my love of fine fare, culinary exploration, education of all students, and dreamcatching by being an ambassador of such a laudable fund raiser.  Please join me with your gift of any amount to help even more students #catchtheirdreams.
