COMPETITION: World Open Chili Championship

QUALIFYING EVENT: New Jersey State Regional

I am a self taught chef who loves to learn, read, and try new recipes in my own kitchen. I was introduced to competitive chili in 1990 and immediately had limited success. After 15 years of bothering other chefs for advice and guidance I finally learned what I was doing. I enjoy passing along the knowledge to the next generation of great chili chefs. In 2011 I had the opportunity to compete in a grilling competition on the Rachael Ray Show. I grew up in Harrisburg Pennsylvania where I enjoyed all sports and acting, especially musicals. I have always enjoyed being on stage and being in front of an audience. I am married with a beautiful wife Lisa and have a 6 year old son Jeremy and 3 year old daughter Jamie.
