“Although I was set on catering, I had no idea that it might lead to an international career and a multitude of adventures – both good and bad, that would change my whole life and shape my personality and my very being, it changed me from the inside out, and it changed my relationship with my friends and family. Being a Professional Chef has provided me with experiences that money could never buy, and memories that time can’t erode. I’ve worked with people from across the globe, and come to understand and appreciate the religions and cultures of the many countries I’ve worked in and visited. As a result I would like to think that this has made me a more tolerant and open-minded person who can adapt and fit in just about anywhere with just about anyone.”
