I began my career after my O levels when I joined catering college at Thika Technical Institute. This is after getting inspired by one of my cousins, who used to work at Turtle Bay Beach Resort in Watamu. Having discovered a passion for the art of culinary cooking, I made sure that I joined a recognized institute which turned out to be Kenya Utalii College; and there my culinary skills were well polished. I have had a lot of challenges in my career.
For the past 18 years, I have been working at different hotels, e.g. Bahari Beach, Hemingways Hotel – which gave me a push towards joining Fish Eagle, where I was molded even more. I eventually ended up at Mada Hotel as a sous chef and due to my hard work, I was promoted to head chef in the same company.
When I am not working, I prefer to visit other restaurants and hotels to see how other chefs do their dishes and present their meals.
