GLOBAL EXECUTIVE CHEF @ PALANTIR TECHNOLOGIES
HEAD CHEF OF CATERING & EVENTS @ GOOGLE HQ
I've been cooking professionally since 2007. I started as a fruit stocker at google and eventually made my way into their kitchens. After 3 years of very hard work, amongst extremely talented people, I was promoted to chef.
Currently, I work at Palantir as the Chef de Cuisine.
My philosophy as a cook boils down to two basic principles:
1. Cook good food; do it responsibly.2. Remain humble, studious, and open-minded.
