Experience, Consulting, & Business Inquires

My decade-long journey as a cook began in the back of the house at Angelini Osteria where I worked my way from apprentice to Sous Chef. In the years following I acted as Sous Chef at Forage, Trattoria Neapolis, and Bestia. I also had the privilege of working at La Terza, Taverna Righi, Lucques, Solbar, and Sotto. Most recently I have enjoyed developing the pasta program at Bestia and look forward to more opportunities to share the joy of fresh, handmade pastas.
