Tell me a little about yourself
With an MBA in Marketing and a passion for good food, I found myself making a career out of my hobby for 30 years. Catering is a field that sparks creativity while affording me the pleasure of breaking bread with special friends.
What do you like most about your job?
That would be two fold. The obvious is watching trends in both food and presentation. Changing and keeping up with the latest trends. And second, the amazingly interesting people who come into my life and being able to share the special occasions of their lives with them.
Who/ What inspires you?
New ideas from my travels. I am always looking for the latest and greatest.
What is your favorite meal?
Anything Indian or Indonesian. Although a really good Raw Bar doesn’t suck!
What is your favorite drink?
I never met a drink I didn’t like except Tequila and White Zinfandel.
What is your Catering Nightmare?
Losing power, early arrivals, leaning wedding cakes and loud bands with too much ego!!
What is your Catering Heaven?
Using culinary research from around the globe to set new trends.
What is the most memorable event that you have ever worked with JTC and why?
The Heidt Wedding 2014
I was so proud to be trusted by such a genuinely lovely family. It was an honor to be part of the memories to their joyous occasion.
