When Stephen left Home to Pursue his dream!
Stephen left his home, Sterling Heights, Michigan to pursue a dream, a passion for food, and began as a full-time student at “CIA – The Culinary Institute of America” in Hyde Park, New York.

Students choose for their gold-standard education programs, expert faculty, world-class facilities, and outstanding career opportunities. While in school, Stephen started his internship at the “Worthington Hotel” in Fort Worth, Texas.
After graduation, Stephen was ready to show his talent and passion in the culinary professional world
Stephen began his new exciting career at Cafe Pacific Restaurant in Highland Park Village in Dallas, Texas. Again, Stephen knew to follow his heart to expand his horizon and began a new career in the corporate world at LSG Sky Chefs. He created new menu items for American Airline First and Business class services. After 7 years in the test Kitchen for LSG Sky Chefs, Stephen grabbed the most amazing and exciting opportunity, as an International Executive Chef for TGI Friday’s.
