THE CREATIVE DIRECTOR
THE EARLY YEARS
As a kid, I spent many evenings behind the bar at Holloway's Hide away and Star Treck ( my family owned bars) counting inventory, not knowing that was work. There I found my love for music- Blues and Jazz to mention a couple; serving, and watching people enjoy themselves . To see the space transformed for live music nights was exciting. Sundays were usually potluck style and it seemed as if everyone bought something different; some were great, others not so much. Desiring to perfect the bad dishes is where my love for cooking began.
As a private banker, dinners, meetings, crafted cocktails and bottles of wine were not foreign. Often I was blown away by the experiences, plate presentation, pairings of food, wine and craft cocktails. Managing a global portfolio in my early 20's allowed me to explore food, wine, fine dining and luxe experiences; so I wanted to bring this home for all to see and experience. Travel and in business dinners created my eye for elevated experiences; this is what I plan to display to the world through food, cocktails and design.
