Michael’s strategy and dedication as an elite runner led him to perform at the 2000 Sydney Olympic games. Transitioning away from his background as “former Olympic athlete”, Michael showcases the same intensity and sacrifice that secured him those Olympic Credentials through his abilities as a Performance Food Chef, Artist, and human being. Michael is a true and genuine, one-of-a-kind talent.
“The food I serve is not any different than the food I was making to get me to the Olympic Games, While I was a freshman at Stanford, I noticed a major gap in food performance options versus ‘five star’ food. I had one goal, to run faster than anybody in the world. In order to accomplish that goal I needed to eat the very best food available to humans, and had a calling to also make it look beautiful.”
“I have been fortunate to spend time with some of the most amazing chef’s that have influenced my cooking, I think traveling to over 40 countries as an athlete, and an artist, has certainly had a large impact on how I build a food experience.”
