I was born…

in Brooklyn, New York.

My favorite thing about Arizona…

the ability and freedom to be an entrepreneur.

I’m listening to…

lately, George Winston. After being in a hectic kitchen all day it is a perfect way to unwind.

My family…

would always come together once a week for huge family dinners prepared by my great grandmother.

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be…

my kids. Family is important to me and I will take every chance I get to spend with them.

One thing I cannot live without…

my wood burning outdoor pizza oven, oh, and of course my golf clubs!

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

a restaurant owner. Food is a passion of mine.

I’m inspired by…

Emeril Lagasse. He opened the door for many chefs and brought respectability to the profession.

The one person who motivates me is…

my father. He is a born leader and an iconic business man in New York.

If I could change anything in the world, it would be…

world hunger. I hate to see children go hungry.

The perfect day would be…

ravioli for breakfast, a round of golf and the rest of the day with my kids.

My first job was…

was making tacos and salsa.

My favorite escape…

the beach. I would even settle for a lake.

My life…

is everything I had hoped it would be.

I’m currently working on…

putting my homemade sauce on grocery store shelves.

Always…

be polite and sweet to others.

Never…

be mean.

Favorite Quote…

is from my mother…“They have the same eyes, ears and hands as you. Go kick their butts.”

Biggest Dream…

to have my own cooking show.

My Pet Peeve(s)…

not being honest. I would rather hear the truth, even if it hurts.
