  1. I’ve been a member of the ACF since 1982 and held numerous Las Vegas chapter positions. Serving first as a board member, I was then elected to President of the chapter. After I served as ACF National President and ACF National Chairman of the Board, I came back to the Las Vegas chapter and was elected as Vice President, and then finally Treasurer.

    Although I served in the highest position in our organization, it did not prevent me from going back to my chapter to assist them with their needs.

    During my tenure at the local chapter, I still was able to serve ACF on a national committee as their National Convention Chairperson. I volunteered my services for a combined ten years.

    In 1999, I was awarded a contract with ACF as their “Event Planner and Management” company and worked with ACF for eight (8) years in this venture. After the 2007 National Convention in Orlando, it was time for me to move on and work on the home front with my businesses that needed my attention.

    Because of my concern for our organization and our industry, it was my intent even then, to seek re-election for the highest office in the American Culinary Federation in 2009.

    In addition to my 26 years serving the ACF, I possess 30 years of industry management experience. This affords me the know-how to operate the ACF as a business, which is direly needed.

    Positions that I have held in our industry include: a kitchen manager position in a regional restaurant chain in up-state New York, Assistant Executive Chef, Executive Chef and Food Director at Caesars Palace Hotel and Resort, and Executive Chef for both The Desert Inn (under Summa Corporation, MGM Grand, and Sheraton) and Lawry’s The Prime Rib.
