He is a sought after presenter and teacher for Health Alliance Plan (HAP), a SE Michigan HMO doing worksite Lunch and Learn cooking programs and HealthPlus, another Michigan HMO in the Flint / Saginaw area. He has appeared on many TV segments throughout the US and is currently a regular on the Fox 2 Detroit morning show with Deena Centofanti demonstrating healthy alternative recipes.
