T.R. was born and raised in Connecticut. Thanks to his mother, he discovered cooking was a great way to express his creativity. She taught him basic techniques that he still uses to this day.
At the age of 18, T.R. began to travel the United States. He lived in various locations, including Florida, Washington, Texas and Arizona. In Arizona, he studied fine arts at Northern Arizona University as a sculpture major. As a chef, he uses his arts background to “…make small sculptures that people can eat”. T.R.’s upbringing and travel experiences allowed him to develop a diverse repertoire of comforting American cuisine inspired by Mediterranean and Spanish cuisines.
After working in Boulder and Estes Park, Colorado, T.R. found home in Fort Collins. He began working as a Sous Chef at Café Vino, then moved to Sonny Lubick Steakhouse where he worked as Executive Chef for nine and a half years. After more than 25 years of cooking, some of his career highlights include charity events, such as the Coloradoan’s “Secret Supper” and being included in the book, “Cooking with Beer in Colorado”.
T.R. has lived in Colorado for 15 years. He has two children, Thomson and Wyatt. The family enjoys outdoor activities such as camping, hiking and biking, as well as attending sporting events like Rockies games.
