Prior to joining Cypress College in 2008, I was the Executive Chef at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel where I headed up several red carpets events including Disney’s 50th Anniversary, the Pirates of the Caribbean and High School Musical movie premieres. I am passionate about teaching and inspiring my students in a way that will set them up for success as they venture out in to the hospitality industry.
