Kudos to all

I have had the privilege of working with exceptionally talented people and companies throughout the course of my career and am very appreciative of the collective passion and spirit. The perpetual pursuit of exploration, learning & development; has garnered the appreciation from peers and the community.

ATE lives the philosophy of “a chef is only as good as their last meal.” Meaning - recognition for past accomplishments is nice…but; the positive impact on tomorrow and what one does in the future is the most important and is what I am focused on.
