What do you do in your new position at The National Exemplar?
I’m responsible for the creative direction of the menu at The National Exemplar, as well as managing all aspects of the restaurant, including staff and general operations. My biggest responsibility is making sure each guest has a positive experience at The National Exemplar, from the moment they walk through the door until they walk out.

What do you like best about this job?
This is one of the best jobs anyone can have. I love cooking—the creative aspect, as well as the regimented order. Cooking is a great way to influence the lives of guests in the restaurant, as well as the people you work with. It’s a chance to teach and learn at the same time. There’s a great staff here, so being able to spend time with people I like and cook food at the same time isn’t so bad.
What's great about living/working in Cincinnati? 
Seeing the city change and grow has been exciting. I remember coming downtown often for music lessons as a kid and it was a ghost town after 5 p.m. The influence of small businesses, restaurants and generous citizens throughout this city has been really great and exciting to see.
What part of town do you live in, and what do you most like about the neighborhood in which you live? 
I live in Mt. Washington, and really enjoy the proximity to all parts of the area. It’s a quick drive Downtown, to Northern Kentucky, Hyde Park or Mariemont. It’s a great neighborhood and easy to get anywhere I want or need to go. It’s also a great neighborhood to raise a family.
