A Greenwood, SC native as well as Cornell and Culinary Institute of the Carolinas Alumni, Michael has been a chef at local high-end establishments for over a decade, he’s also worked with Michelin star chefs, pit-masters, and extensive training with world renowned chefs in New Orleans. Between a decade-long search for knowledge, passion and hard work along with the family recipes his wife gifted him as a wedding present, White Wine & Butter Catering was born.

Bringing the first Black Chef-Owned concept to Downtown Greer, Chef Michael shares Cajun & Creole flavors with a new twist with guests at White Wine & Butter.

In 2023 Chef Michael added a smash burger concept, Anonymous Burgers to the list of options at Cartwright Food Hall. The quirky concept has been a huge hit with Upstate burger fans. He followed this up with an appearance on Food Network’s Guy’s Grocery Games, and celebrating the birth of his baby boy just a few weeks later.
