Meet the Chef Q&A
How did you get started at Rosebud?

I joined Rosebud in 1991 as a dishwasher, and have since worked my way up through various kitchen positions including prep cook, line cook, kitchen manager, sous chef, and now Corporate Chef.

With years of experience at all nine Rosebud locations, my understanding of every role and location has allowed me to effectively lead the culinary team. The recipe to success comes down to organization, consistency and a love for what I do. I consider Rosebud my second home, where I have grown both personally and professionally.

What does the Rosebud experience mean to you?

To me, Rosebud represents a celebration of family, tradition, and the love of good food. Our entire team has a passion for creating authentic, Italian dishes for our customers. Every day, I strive to uphold the high standards of our restaurant and bring joy to our diners through the meals we prepare.

What’s your favorite thing about your role as Rosebud’s Corporate Chef?

The people. The opportunity to serve our amazing customers, and work alongside a group of people with a shared passion for creating delicious recipes, is something I’m extremely grateful for. Being a part of the Rosebud family brings a sense of pride and fulfillment. Together, we are able to create a warm and inviting dining experience for our guests, which is truly what it’s all about.
