    From a young age, Chef Rey was interested in cooking, learning from his mother and grandmother. Yet, when it came time to attend college, he put his culinary passions aside and attended Texas A&M University. Upon graduation, he pursued a career in the oil and gas industry as an Operations Manager for Andon Specialties, Inc.

At the age of 37, he made the life-changing decision to enroll in the Culinary Arts, Associate of Applied Science Program at The Art Institute of Houston. He would go on to graduate with honors in 2004 and start the creation of his personal brand, “Chef Rey.”

Through his talents he was able and honored to give his gift of cooking to philanthropic causes like the National African-American Breast Cancer Survivorship Organization, Texas Wildlife Association, Hope for Three, and many more. 

    Through Nevele’s he also had the opportunity to cook for celebrities and professional athletes. These connections directly led to the next steps in his culinary career where he became the head chef of a professional baseball team, a collaborative culinary innovator with a major restaurant chain, and even opened his own restaurant in Missouri City, TX. Today, he is proud to hold the title of Executive Chef to the Houston Rockets.

He assists in the presentation and preparation of food. “Every day begins and ends with a meeting to discuss events. Stations are assigned and expectations for each of us are given. Stations rotate regularly so that we are able to learn everything equally,” he says.

    700R4 Plug Wiring Diagram Free Download Wiring Diagram Schematic Brian is excited to be a Disney cast member—a job he describes as “creating happiness.” “The fact that I am able to [make people happy] with food is what I’m most proud of.” He adds that his culinary inspiration is James Beard Foundation Award-winning chef, TV personality, and restaurateur Chef Michael Symon. Living and working at Disney World is also a major perk. “I get into all of the parks for free whenever I want and I experience Disney magic on a daily basis.”

    House Wiring For Beginners Pdf Brian, who in 2015 earned an Associate of Applied Science in Culinary Arts from The Art Institute of Houston, says his education taught him to be a balanced and well-rounded industry professional. “I learned about the importance of attention to detail and consistency.” Brian recommends that current students use fruits and vegetables that are in season and never stop practicing the basics. “The techniques you learn in your skills lab will go with you for your entire career.”

When he joined the company, it was in transition. “One of [the new] goals was to take our top baked goods and produce them on a larger scale with the help of contract manufacturers. I helped lead this process and we now have around dozen items that being commercially produced and carried by food distributors like Sysco and sold in stores such as Whole Foods,” he says.
