The Trendy Chef's career began after graduating from the Riverside Culinary Academy at
the age of 21. Shortly after graduating he proceeded to Florence Italy for three months to
cook with Executive Chefs from different restaurants in the area to enhance his own creative

Coachella Music Festival in California. During the festival he landed the opportunity to

platform in the world. I jump at the chance to speak about how I got started with cooking
and how I overcame growing up in a bad neighborhood with lots of violence as well
growing up with a single father who couldn't even cook scrambled eggs.
• I created culinary cooking classes for the youth all around Southern California, to teach
kids ages 5 to 16 the fundamentals of cooking. How to take their favorite junk food meals
and make them from scratch to make a healthier version.
• I appeared on The Steve Harvey Show as a surprise audience member to speak about
my 24k gold wings with Steve Harvey himself
• I was featured in Unheard Voices Magazine, a black-owned online magazine which
highlights black news. The article spoke about me losing my older sister to gun violence

opening many businesses while helping my community.
