About Me

My family has been in the Restaurant/Bakery business since 1942. I have worked in the industry since I was 10 years old taking a break to join the United States Navy in 1992. After the Navy I became certified and worked as a Paramedic in San Antonio, Texas for 6 years. In 2009 I opened a bakery in Garden Ridge, Texas. and in 2010 I attended St Philips College in San Antonio, Texas where received my AAS in Culinary Arts. In 2013, I started a Food Truck/Catering business which developed into a Bakery/Café located in Schertz, Texas, and in 2016 I attended Texas State University where received my BS in Family and Consumer Science.
