About Me

I am an award-winning Chef who originally hails from the District. I served 13 years of military service in the Army. During that time I traveled the globe and gained an appreciation for food like no other. That passion led me to obtain a bachelor’s in Culinary Arts from Johnson and Wales University.
I have been a personal chef to the highest military leadership and a state governor, sous chef, and an executive chef, I have held the chef title in Iceland, Italy, Denmark, and throughout the US. But while traveling I felt there was more I could do with food that just feeds people. I want to make a difference in this world. That drive led me to get a master’s degree in Sustainable Food Systems. With the knowledge I have gained from that program I hope to improve the food system through food service.
In addition to being an active member of kitchens and a proponent of sustainable food systems, I am pursuing a in Education. My research is examining food literacy in school-aged children and how it contributes to their academic success.

  • We had Chef Isaiah come in for a 30th dinner party for 10 people. He was amazing!! Throughout the process, he was very communicative as I changed the number of people and worked through the menu. He promptly arrived at the agreed upon time and from there the experience only got better! Each meal was delicious, he did not skimp out on portion sizes, and everyone left the dinner raving about each dish. I can’t recommend Isaiah enough, we will definitely be using him again.

  • Every single part of the evening with Isaiah was awesome. He was wonderfully kind, punctual, quick, organized, super clean and completely in the zone. He was beyond helpful - even taking a moment to step out of the kitchen every now and again to help me set up for my wife's surprise party. The food was excellent, service impeccable. We couldn't have asked for a better chef to make the evening special. Everyone loved him of course. Thank you, Isaiah!

  • We loved the experience. Chef Isaiah was friendly and professional. He prepared a five course meal for my wife’s birthday. He sent me a sample menu and had no issue with slight adjustments to our liking. The food and the presentation were very nice. I wish I had asked for two more courses. We wanted to try more of his food.

  • Could not have had a better experience for a romantic dinner with my wife celebrating one of those special birthdays that come every 10 years! Chef Isaiah was very professional, prompt, clean and the food was amazing! He grows many of the herbs himself, has special local sources for seafood, meat, salads etc. He is a pleasure to speak with while preparing the meal, full of great stories of his cooking experiences. Would not hesitate to bring him in again for another special occasion and highly recommend him to anyone who desires a special dining experience at home.

  • Isaiah provided an outstanding experience creating a dinner for 12 people. It exceeded our expectations in every way. The food was delicious, with the short ribs a particular stand out. All aspects of the presentation and service were excellent. He did an excellent job meeting our need for the food to be gluten and dairy free and to have a vegan option. He made a special occasion very memorable for all. I highly recommend him.
