I'd like to take this opportunity to tell you a little bit about myself, and explain to you what fuego is all about.


Cooking has always been a passion of mine. After I completed my service in the Navy Reserves I decided to use my GI Bill to go to culinary school for formal training. My ultimate goal is to open a Bed & Breakfast in Oregon's Wine Country.

A question that I often get is, "Why Mexican and Latin American cuisine?". During my travels working in the tech industry, I took a couple of trips to Mexico City. The restaurants that my colleagues and customers took me to blew my mind. There was so much more to Mexican cuisine than I had experienced in the US. Fine dining in many cities throughout Mexico and Latin America is unbelievable. The more I learned and the more I tasted, the more I loved!

I'm a Private Chef, not a Caterer or Personal Chef. I specialize in providing a restaurant-quality, fine dining experience, in unique locations, serving between 8-20 people. For example, I can provide dinner service at your home for a special occasion, or dinner at a boutique winery for an extra-special event or for a small corporate dinner party. I can even do a fine-dining experience at a park.

While business slowed down due to the COVID pandemic, the requests I got from friends, family, and clients to do online cooking classes kept coming. 

My online classes are completely interactive.  You won’t type questions to me in a chat window. Instead, you can ask your questions verbally. You can even show me what you’re doing in your kitchen so I can help you right then and there.


Please come join me for a fun time and learning experience. Remember, eating is about tasting and sharing. I’ll see you in class and in your kitchen!
