Meet the Team
Off-Premise Catering Sales Manager
An Omaha native, Jeff first stepped into our kitchen as a sous chef in 2000. He went on to attend the Culinary Institute of America in New York City, and spent several years working in restaurants there and in San Diego. In 2009, he returned to his exotic homeland to become the Executive Chef at Pitch Pizzeria. We lured him, his tattoos and his Harley away in 2012. Jeff brings a love of seasonal variations and local sourcing to Upstream’s menus. And, of course, he knows which brew goes best with each entrée

How many breweries have you toured?
Quite a few, although I’ve tasted beer from many more. That’s my preferred activity, and there’s always a long line of beers left to try!
Did you ever wait tables?
Carhopped and cooked at King’s Drive-In during high school, bartended and waited tables at The Lincoln Underground during college, then worked in various food and beverage jobs in the hotel business.
A suitably grilled steak smothered with chimichurri, medium rare please.
Appetizer or dessert?
Both, but if I have to choose, chocolate is king!
