Tell me a bit about yourself. 
I'm a 40-something preacher from Detroit. I've been preaching since I was 16 and cooking since I was 9! I love Jesus, family, food and football. Not always in that order. Lol

What made you decide to go on MasterChef? 
My friend basically bullied me into it. I got a call TELLING me that I had to be at a hotel at 8AM the day of my son's senior prom with my dish ready to win!!! So I went. The rest is history. 

What was the experience like?
 It was one of the most amazing, terrifying and humbling experiences of all my life. Just to be able to at 43, go after your dreams again was unheard of to me. Being in the midst of THE Gordon Ramsay almost made me speechless and that's tough to do!  I met the most amazing people from sooooo many different walks of life. I wouldn't trade this for anything. It was tough mentally, spiritually and physically! I'm sure I'll never do anything like it again! I'm wasaayyyy too old! 

What is your signature dish?
 I don't really have a signature dish per se'. My family LOVES my mac n cheese as well as my chicken and waffles. I also make 5 different kinds of lasagna regularly as well as a mean dessert called chess squares! 

What is one thing you want to learn how to cook?
 French Artisan Pastry! I find it fascinating how beautiful and intricately detailed they are. It's awe-inspiring! 

What would people be surprised to know about you?
 I'm a lifelong diehard Green Bay Packer Fan! My bucket list includes a trip to the Frozen Tundra to watch Green Bay BEAT the Detroit Lions! 

What are you watching on TV these days?
Well since football season is over, mostly cooking shows and a few game shows. I LOVE Chopped and Beat Bobby Flay! Of course I NEVER miss MasterChef or Hell’s Kitchen and I'm sooooo looking forward to The F Word! Oops, Can I say The F Word? 

Anything else you want to tell America?
 I think that this season of MasterChef is going to be amazing. I believe it's going to be the best one yet! This competition is fierce and I CANNOT go home without that white apron!
