Michael, who has been in the industry for over twenty five years, joined the team in 2007. Cutting his teeth here in Ontario after eight years decided a change was in order and moved west to Vancouver. While there he completed his apprenticeship, obtaining provincial certification. Working as Sous Chef, Michael expanded his knowledge and honed his skills. Seeking a change after four years, he jumped at the chance to work at the Westin Bayshore Resort and Marina. For the next four years, Michael learned about large scale production, team leadership and improved his organizational skills. Returning to Ontario several years ago, Michael took a position as Sous Chef with the Liberty Grand in Toronto, where large weddings and other gala events are standard.

While trends come and go, Michael has always been a firm believer in the "fresh is best" mentality and believes strongly in sustainability. Basing menu ideas around local ingredients respecting environmental sensitivities, Michael creates a truly memorable dining experience with a strong focus on flavours and quality. Michael's attention to detail and artistic vision drives him forward in all endeavours.
