How long have you been cooking?

I've been cooking for about 8 years now! Started out of necessity in college but quickly found it was my passion!

What is your signature dish?

I don't consider any single recipe my "signature," however the two dishes I get asked for the most are my Modern Steak and Potatoes and my Sunny Scallop Pasta!

What will you do with the $50,000?

I would love to save them and put them towards my girlfriend's and my dream kitchen at our future house! I am fortunate enough to have a career that I love and get to help tons of people daily; but if the Bon Appétit readers like my cooking I would love to start some kind of food vlog from my dream kitchen!
