Ft. Walton Beach, Florida
Staying close to home, this Southern boy is keenly aware of flavors people love and crave. He knows food and knows how people relish their dining experiences.
He loves to “create something out of nothing.” That passion to move raw materials to beautiful led Steven to an extensive career in construction — before leaving that behind to turn his love for cooking into his profession.
After entering the kitchen as a dishwasher, a decade and more later Steven has built a reputation for cultivating a kitchen culture with his positive energy. While working the long hours of a chef, Steven inspires performance with fun, laughter, and clear expectations — always driven by his passion to cook.
An avid outdoorsman, when not in the kitchen you can find Steven shooting, fishing, carpentering, and spending time with his family.
