Why'd you want to work with us, and what's your favourite part about it?
"I'd worked with Chef Bill Pratt a few years back, up in Fort McMurray, Alberta. He ran our Hospitality Department at McDonald Island Park, where I performed as his Executive Sous Chef, helping our team of 12 run events from 10 to 10,000 patrons. Having Bill at the helm gave me the piece of mind and confidence to flex my skills and grow as a chef, knowing full well that I'd always be part of something special as long as he was in the picture.
That been said, having run dry of work overseas on a short work stint with Compass Group for the 2014 Ryder Cup Golf Tournament in Scotland, and a few other events, I decided to come join forces with Bill and Chef Kyle. We'd kept in touch a few times after Bill left Fort McMurray to come start his empire out east, and he promised me a spot on his team; as he liked my work ethic and attitude. It's been quite the journey thus far and know full well that he won't disappoint in the future. With all his crazy ideas, it's like working for Willy Wonka....wait a sec....Billy Wonka??"
"I've always wanted to run my own operation. Whether it's a small bistro type outfit or a proven franchise with a trendy forecast and promising stamina, I believe I'm in it for the long haul."
"I thoroughly enjoy travelling to new countries and immersing myself into foreign culture. It gives people such a cool insight as to how we live our day to day lives, and how we'd like to adapt/change our current ways of living for the better.
I also enjoy Food, new foods mostly...ingredients I haven't seen/tasted before. Camping with friends/family, watching Movies at the local Cineplex or Drive-in (if ya got one). Adventures like Sky Diving (YOLO), and day dreaming about the next time I get to golf....I fricken love golf! Oh and Scrabble...great game!"
