Coastal Luxury Management

Contractor

As a Culinary Volunteer Coordinator for LAFW I contacted culinary arts students from various schools and culinary based programs throughout the Los Angeles area to staff assistants to over 100 chefs over 5 tastings and 10 demonstrations.

In addition to staffing assistants to these chefs, I would also assist chefs and volunteers by getting any items needed to execute plating and service during the LAFW events

I was also a student volunteer my first 2 years at LAFW and was able to work with chefs Lydia Shire, Charles Phan, Luciano Pelegrini, Wolfgang Puck and many others.

Career

Culinary and Baking Arts Club

President

With the assistance of club committees and faculty, along with my leadership skills, the club was able to facilitate workshops, coordinate fundraisers and volunteer for various events to gain valuable experience not learned in class. At the end of my presidency, the club purchased student memberships for the American Culinary Federation for the volunteers that put in a minimum amount of hours.
