HOLY MACKEREL! (coastal pun completely intended.) I MADE IT TO THE TOP 3!!!!!! All I can say is, WOW! What a crazy, crazy ride this has been. Getting up in front of iconic celebrity chefs plus 2.5 million viewers to essentially make a fool out of yourself in pursuit of a life long dream takes, well.. […]
My Coastal Kitchen
We started in LA, then conquered Vegas, and now it’s on to the Big Apple. This competition has taken me to a lot of places, but it’s great to finally be back on the east coast. When we arrived in New York, I stepped off the plane and took a deep breath of the brisk, humid air. I immediately […]
Another episode of Food Network Star is under my belt, and I can’t believe I made it through. This was easily the most difficult episode of the season, on so many different levels. Welllllllll, except for that one part where I got to eat a bowl of ice cream that cost about as much as […]
Woah. A whole lotta stuff went down in this episode. We arrive in Vegas, then Luca returns, I use a bunch of big confusing words, and the cowboy does a belly flop. As much as I’d like to talk about all of these things individually, there is only so much I can fit into one […]

Cutthroat Kitchen is a gnarly game. Need I say more? Well, yeah… I guess I have a bit of explaining to do.
Hey guys! Episode 2 is now under our belts, and I’ve got just a few things to say about it. The best part about episode #2, by far, was that I got to watch it at a bar in Brooklyn with a few other Season 10 cast members, a couple FNS alum, and even some old friends from home (we go […]
Wow! What a whirlwind these past few days have been. Trying to process this whole ‘being on national television’ thing is a lot harder than I thought. But it’s cool. I mean, this is something that I’ve always wanted to do.
