How did you get into your business, or what motivated you to start it? "I was in food and beverage for more than 13 years while in New York. Prior to my last position as food and beverage manager for Ian Schrager Hotels, I had opened several restaurants in Manhattan. As a self-taught chef, I have always wanted to open a variety of restaurants with different themes and cuisines, especially bringing some of my favorites to Hagerstown."

Previous business experience: "In addition to my years in food and beverage, I have also worked in the television broadcasting industry as a department coordinator at MTV in New York City. This work and skill set prepared me to establish my catering company, The Answer is Porcini!, as well as developing other future ventures in the culinary field."
