Life is uncertain; eat dessert first.

I enjoy what I do, utilizing my creative flair to create savory and sweet creations for your everyday consumption. I also love my sailboat and to ride my BMW R1200c.

To what do you attribute your success?
Community support. I thrive on listening to what my customers want. They offer suggestions and insight, and I deliver.

How do you personally define business success?
For entrepreneurs, great satisfaction comes from the process of creation—starting with just an idea and building something that lasts. There is pride of ownership having a business that is successful, and people keep coming back for more.

What are your hobbies and how do you like to relax?
Sailing and riding my BMW motorcycle.

Favorite local charitable organization?
Palmetto Ocean Conservancy and their Guardians of the Sea kids’ program. They travel to different schools and discuss conservation and sustainability, and that’s what we pride ourselves on. We use eco-friendly to-go items in our restaurant. Save the oceans!

What is one thing you didn’t know when you became a business owner that you wish you had known?
One thing I didn’t know when I started the company was the long hours I would have to put in. Any entrepreneur will tell you, once you start a successful business, you’re married to it. The benefits are happy clients and a valued reputation.
