I am a tv personality and chef. Although I did not win Food Network Star, I beat out many others in competitive series. Bobby and Giada often praised my food and were brought in by my quirky personality. I am continuing my culinary endeavors through catering, personal chef experiences, demos and more. If you are seeking insanely delicious food, paired with an engaging cook (hint: me), I would love to be apart of your event.
Although I am living in Honolulu, I am most definitely willing to travel. Travel expenses must be covered in addition to service fees.
Price Range: $200- $4000
Gig Length: 60 - 8 minutes
What to Expect
I am one flexible person. That is great for you. Whether you're looking for a caterer, an interactive experience, a television demo or a private chef, I have your back. The services and costs will vary upon the scenario. My current cap for catering is 50 people.
I am one stellar self taught chef. In fact, my skills and dynamic personality landed me a spot o Season 13 of Food Network Star. Bobby Flay and Giada loved my food and I consistently out shined even professional chefs. Now that I am back home I am focusing on curating a culinary legacy. I have been doing more catering, private chef events, demos and just want to share my love of cooking with everyone I come in contact with. With a variety of culinary styles, I am certain that I can provide whatever you are looking for. My dynamic and quirky personality is also sure to draw some attention.
I am 33 years old, and currently live in Honolulu, Hawaii with my 2 children and my husband. We are constantly outdoors hiking, ocean kayaking and exploring everything this beautiful island has to offer.

Influences & Inspiration
Being on season 13 of Food Newtork Star was an incredible experience for me. I learned so much and it opened my eyes to everything that is out there for me. I have had my food blog for almost 3 years now. It has been the longest standing culinary outreach that I have. I do absolutely everything for my food blog from cooking the food, taking the pictures, writing the posts and editing the layout. Through it I have refined my skills, practiced and grown to a level of cooking that floored even people like Bobby Flay and Giada De Laurentis.
