​Research Product Development Chef
PepsiCo Global Foods and Frito Lay North America 

“Bridging the gap between culinary arts and product development has taken me on a journey around the world, observing the reasons human beings eat what we eat. It’s all thanks to the education and support I received through El Centro’s Food and Hospitality Institute and the dedicated staff and faculty who believed in me. Find what it is that drives inspiration and passion for cooking from within you. Whether it is business, science, art or compassion, cooking can be incorporated throughout.”
