I am a certified executive chef and food production manager. I got my first job as an executive chef at The Palomino Room in Sacramento when I turned 29. I then moved on to larger properties, such as The Hilton Arden West and as banquet chef at the Eldorado in Reno. I love to ride motorcycles and have a Springer Softail that I am on as much as possible, especially riding in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. I spend a lot of time at the Mission serving food and holding functions for our clients and the homeless. My job here isn’t just a job; it’s a passion. I remember what it is like to be in the Program, so I do what I can to make people here get the most they can out of their program.
