I’m Javi, professional bread baker…
I like to think of myself as many things but today my story is that I’m a professional bread baker, entrepreneur, amateur pianist. I even had the amazing opportunity of being a piano instructor for children in 2019-2020 at the Meridee Winters School of Music in Ardmore, PA.
Where I'm from
I was born and raised in Santiago, Chile and visit there often as most of my family and friends live down there.
I have been living in Pennsylvania, USA since 2017 and currently live in Lehigh Valley, PA.
I studied business in Santiago, Chile and then obtained a masters degree in finance which enabled me to work in the corporate world for several years. The stability was nice, but none of the jobs ever resonated with me. So when the opportunity to move to the United States came up, I decided it was the perfect time to make a career change.
In 2018, I moved to New York where I attended the world renown International Culinary Center.
I completed their International Bread Baking Program under the instruction of Chef Johnson.
Not only did I gain an incredible amount of knowledge but also the confidence and strength to pursue and open Vituperio!
All of this thanks to my fellow students in the group.
