I have always enjoyed working and had the urge to create! Carpentry and construction have long been hobbies of mine, and I find it liberating to draw and paint. Creating things has always brought me joy. Whether developing restaurants or cafes, baking bread or creating sweet creations in the confectioner's spirit - all of these things are so similar.
Cooking competitions have given me the drive to continue. Their breadth and excitement, and the demand to perform under pressure have challenged and delighted me.
Being an innovator can be very demanding. The constant chase, the liberating feeling of finding the solution and making the decisions by yourself, it is so incredibly satisfying! With this as a backdrop, I have restored a small outhouse in my garden and turned it into a private restaurant and culinary playground where I can discover myself.
Welcome to my little world!
