Cooking Style: "I like hearty, heavy food disguised as fancy plates. I basically cook like a grandma who likes her food nicely presented!"

Why MasterChef?: "I've been a huge fan for a decade and always wanted to come on the show to be in a focused environment where I can push myself to try new things. I also wanted to build my confidence to pivot my career to something food related."
