Growing up, I was blessed to be raised in a family that valued healthy cooking. Of course, growing up I may not value it as much as I do today. With an upbringing in cooking with and for others, becoming a chef was an easy choice. After going to culinary school and obtaining my degree in Culinary Science, the world of cooking really opened up in a new way for me. I was able to use data-driven science to improve the quality and healthiness of my food, without having to sacrifice flavor and enjoyment. Since then I have tried to spend my career at the intersection of healthy and delicious cooking!
