The mastermind of Maple Ave and Water & Wall and native Northern Virginian is dedicated to creating fun and innovative dining experiences. Leaving behind his career as an engineer, he attended the French Culinary Institute to pursue a profession in the food industry. Fast forward to the present, he is now the proud owner of two restaurants, and receiving numerous amounts of praise from critics and peers.

"I was excited to visit one of the places that Washington Post critic Tom Sietsema rated as one of the best restaurants in DC. However, I was very underwhelmed by the experience as a whole.
The waiter had a sloppy pouring of the wine, some of which got on the table and sat in a puddle for the rest of the meal. My steak, ordered medium, came out rare (perhaps barely medium rare by some standards). The food, when prepared to my liking was tasty but not memorably better than many other places I could find in Arlington (Liberty Tavern, et al.). I appreciated that they comp'ed an after-dinner drink to make up for the rare steak. However, since my nights out are limited, I just don't see myself returning."
