Justin moved to Montana from Philadelphia fifteen years ago to study wildlife biology at the University of Montana. While attending the university he worked in restaurants as a cook and later became chef. It was during this time that he developed a passion for food and cooking. With over fifteen years of professional experience, and a life time of exposure to good food, Justin has a strong desire to share his love of food and culture with the students. It is his goal to not only inspire a love of the different cuisines of the world, but to help develop an understanding of nutrition and the importance of a balanced diet. It is in this way that Justin hopes to contribute to the growth of the students here at Monarch School.
