As a Clearwater, Florida native, Jarrod discovered his passion for food while watching his grandmother and mother cook for his family. He quickly realized this was the career for him, so he enrolled at Johnson and Wales University in Denver, Colorado and embarked on a journey of exploring Southern flavors. Upon graduation, Jarrod and his family moved back to Florida to con­tinue building his culinary career. During his time in Florida he worked under many talented chefs in the Tampa Bay area such as Michael Mina, Chris Ponte, and Chad Johnson.

In the fall of 2016, Jarrod was ready for a change and moved with his family to Iowa to join Greek House Chefs. Jarrod started as a chef at a fraternity on the Iowa State University campus and excelled in the kitchen, expanding the palettes of House members by sharing his Southern cooking skills. The Greek House Chefs management team quickly realized that Jarrod’s talents went well beyond cooking as he motivated his team in the kitchen, implemented efficient strategies and maintained an exceptional level of service.
