I am a chef, author, restaurateur and philanthropist, and I arrived in Los Angeles from Northern Ireland in 1975, to begin my career in the culinary industry. My culinary expertise encompasses an international diversity including Indian, Chinese, Mexican, Japanese, French and, of course, Contemporary California and Irish. I have been featured in the L.A. Times, Fine Cooking Magazine, and Bon Appetit Magazine named (Website hidden by Airbnb) of the top six chefs in the United States”. Today, I own two distinctively different restaurants on Main Street in Santa Monica,California: Lula Cocina Mexicana, a bold, bright and colorful cantina famous for its murals painted by artist Eloy Torrez, and Signature Lula Margaritas;and Finn McCool's Irish Pub, boasting a beautiful bar shipped painstakingly over from Ireland through the Panama Canal.In 1995, I built my dream home, Rancho Chiquita, nestled high in the Malibu Mountains. Rancho Chiquita overlooks a spectacular panoramic ocean view and 250 acres of rolling hills, and is host to many Charity Fundraising Events, Weddings , Private Cooking Classes , and Film and Movie Shoots. I am an avid advocate on behalf of the protection and rehabilitation of animals, and I share my home with a multitude of Rescue Dogs.
