  • When did you first start getting serious about cooking and why?

    I took Home Economics in high school and I really excelled. My teacher really encouraged me to pursue culinary arts because she said I had a "natural talent." She even arranged a class trip on my behalf so I could visit some culinary schools!

  • Why did you want to be a contestant on Hell’s Kitchen?

    I wanted to be a contestant on HELL’S KITCHEN to challenge and prove to myself that I could survive the "wrath of Ramsay," and to see if I have what it takes to make it to the end!

  • What was your favorite experience on Hell’s Kitchen?

    Working with Chef Andi and spending all day with a chef of her level really inspires and motivates me to push myself to be a better a chef. And secondly, all the incredible friends I’ve made!

  • What is the most valuable lesson you learned from Chef Ramsay?

    In order to be a successful chef you must have standards, consistency, and the fire to fight back. Also, it’s not how you start, it’s how you finish.

  • What is your favorite dish to cook and why?

    My favorite dish to cook is seared scallops with a seasonal risotto. They are two ingredients that require time and an excellent palate to master.
