PERSONAL
I learned the art of design and love for food from my amazing parents in Brazil. I cherish the experience of working in their restaurant as a kid. My mom taught me how to make one of the best traditional dishes of our region, Mao de vaca. If your lucky, I will make one for you!

FAVORITE PASTIME
Spending time at my getaway home in upstate NY, Fishing for trout in the reservoir and drinking good French wine. I enjoy entertaining for friends and family. There is nothing more satisfying than watching people enjoy my parties…at home and on the job

HEROES
Mom & Dad

UNFULFILLED AMBITION
That is very hard to answer! Once I look back, 17 years ago…moving to a new country without speaking the language…a few years later I’m working with the best. It only gets better from here!
