Nate is a 33-year-old fully qualified chef. He was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at age 3 and by the time he was 8, he required hearing aids in both ears. At 16, his eyesight had declined to the point where he could not complete his HSC. Despite this occurring, he has always had a passion for food and made it his goal to become a qualified chef, which he has achieved. Nate has published a cookbook and regularly runs cooking demonstrations. He loves cooking with natural fresh ingredients and has many food heroes who do the same. He’d love to meet one of them one day. Nate has recently taken a job as a chef in a care facility where he performs his role as well as any other chef, just with a few extra pieces of equipment and resources.
