First, I am a self taught cook. But I've had the privilege to gain some formal training working with some of the world's top chefs. As a top 40 MasterChef contestant, I trained with one of the best teams of culinary professionals for an enduring experience of a lifetime. I've also worked with restaurateurs in Italy, fishmongers in San Diego, farmers, foodies, and wine savants. I play around with most cuisines, but nothing fuels me like the aromas of saffron and turmeric so distinguished in Persian food. My grandmother never liked having me around the kitchen in fear of burns and grease spatter, so naturally I made it a goal of mine to refine her infamous suppers into something she could be proud of.  


I love to cook for people in order to make unforgettable memories and leave lasting impressions. It's not just about the food, it's about the whole experience, and that's why I chose to be a personal chef, because it's important for me to know my clients. I am here to bring something new and fresh to your table as we bond over what we all have in common, the love of food.
