Profile Activity

I always try to set the bar as high as i can, but am not afraid to learn, i look for the qualities around me within my team, and play with the qualities at my disposal.
I've been lucky in my career to have a good eye for right from wrong, be it from chefs to food, I've been lucky to have been trained by good chefs, and was thought by old school, and chefs with flare and charisma, i think this comes out in my personality and ability to run the kitchen i work in.
