Hell's Kitchen

WED 8/7c

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

    I first started getting serious about cooking right out of high school. Decided to go to culinary school and got a real line cook job in Baltimore at the inner harbor. When I experienced the rush and the chaos I thought, this is where I belong.

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

    I wanted to be a contestant on HELL?S KITCHEN not for the glory or the exposure or any fame or fortune that might come with it, but for the competition. I wanted to see where I stood among others across the country.

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

    My favorite experience on HELL?S KITCHEN was the ability to be schooled by Chef Ramsay. Regardless of how it came about, being critiqued and guided by such an accomplished chef was worth any amount of punishment.

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

    The most valuable lesson I learned from Chef Ramsay would have to be how to communicate better on the line and how to push my team to be better. I also learned that it?s all about how strong you finish.

  • What is your favorite dish to cook and why?

    I don?t really have a favorite dish. That?s like asking what my favorite music is. I love it all, but I guess if I had to choose it would be gazpacho with lime and crab ceviche topped with mojito granita.
