We all come to moments when your personal and or business life is going to change. You can choose the right path or the wrong one. The real opportunities come when you see the path for it's worth and growth potential.

Serving 24 years as a chef, Advisor, and Protection in the US Army working for and side by side the world's top leaders gave me a unique insight into seeing paths both good and bad. Leadership, Integrity, Core Values allowed me to see the business world in new ways, as i developed my own style of mentor and development that I have taught and trained by the thousands. Being a chef has taught me as well that following the recipe as written is not always the best option for a great meal.

Let me bring you into my world of Fun, Laughter, Mystery, Intrigue and Tear Jerkers. I can come to your business functions - golf outings, parties, putting on cooking demonstrations, and so much more. Don't hesitate to get in touch, you will have me back.
