I chose to go to Stafford because I wanted to be a chef and thought that the Culinary Arts Program at STC would be a good way to get a jump start on it before college. From Stafford I got everything I needed to get a basic starting position in a restaurant. After my two student years I went back to STC as a Teacher's Assistant for Chef Barry and Chef Greg. Halfway through the year I learned that STC was giving me the opportunity to go and study in Austria for two weeks at the most prestigious culinary school in Europe. After that I attended the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York, the #1 cooking school in the country. My experiences at STC made me a more rounded and experienced individual at a younger age, which helped me to move through the ranks of the kitchen before I got to college.
