When did you realise your passion for cooking? 

When I was a kid and used to cook for my brother and his friends. My career as a chef then started in 2015 when I started studying a Diploma in Culinary Arts. 

What’s been your proudest professional achievement so far? 

Meeting and interacting with some high-profile people. I’ve also been very lucky to have moved up in the Marble group so quickly – each promotion has been a career highlight for me.

How do you spend your off days? 

Sleeping and recovering from the previous week. Being a chef is very demanding, but well worth it! I also enjoy playing golf and reading culinary books. 

Where do you hang out in Joburg? 

My favourite place to head to after a busy service is Sin+Tax, a bar just down the road from Marble in Rosebank.

What’s your go-to weeknight dinner? 

Anything cooked by my mother!
