Chef | Event Planner
Buckeye (Verrado), AZ
Kevin is a chef, caterer and event planning expert. Since the 1980's, he has accumulated a diverse experience in fine dining, catering, food service consulting, large-scale events and food service marketing. Having worked with celebrity chefs and traveling to amazing countries like Italy and Ireland to hone his skills, creating memorable experiences with events with food is his true passion.
Kevin has been cooking since he was a very small child. His Mother had to implement a “no cooking if
Mom’s not home policy” to curtail his constant culinary exploration. Kevin’s culinary profession started
in college, where like many, he bartended to earn tuition money. That lead to a long career in every
aspect of restaurant operations.
