A lot of Chef Joseph’s inspiration came from watching others in their passion, from barbers and tattoo artists to mechanics and hair stylists. Joseph loved watching others and how these professionals made people feel. When Chef Joseph was a young boy, his family moved from Detroit to California. They opened a small business and started out with a deep fryer making fried chicken and french fries with a side of hot sauce. Basic and simple, right? This food was served to all of the hard workers in the fields surrounding their family business. He knew the smiles on their faces came from the food. Chef Joseph then knew his love for people was being fueled by his faith in God. As time went on Chef Joseph continued to surround his business around the dinner table.

His children are a huge inspiration in his life, and they help motivate him continually to do more for others and to always get children involved in his craft.
