Hi, I’m Ryan but you can call me Chef Chubs!

As a brand ambassador and personal chef in Boulder, Colorado. I’ve been working around food for the past 8 years and started my journey in Seattle, Washington where I attended Culinary School from 2009-2011. After graduating with a degree in Culinary Arts and Chef Training I worked at Pike Place Market downtown and Steelhead Diner. Since then I’ve lived in Texas and Hawaii before circling back to my home state.

My love of all things food started when I had my first experience with an over-easy egg when I was twelve years old. It was like eating nature’s butter and I was hooked. I have a passion for food, cooking and teaching others how to enjoy what they eat.

Meal planning

I specialize in meal planning, catering and private parties. I strive to make dishes that are simple and let the ingredients shine.  My goal is to produce meals with only 4 ingredients per component. Ready to work with me on your next event or set of meals?



Company events

I currently work as a brand ambassador for local restaurants and events. I have participated in fundraisers during Seattle Restaurateur Week. I have also worked with major companies here in Colorado, such as Organic Valley’s 100% Grass Fed Milk/Dairy line back in 2012. Want to hire me as a brand ambassador?



Customized needs

Need something that’s not mentioned here? Let’s talk! I’d love to work with you on coming up with a customized food plan to fit your needs. I can also do weekly grocery shopping and private cooking for holidays, birthdays and other events. Looking for a customized quote?

Testimonials from companies

In 2012, Organic Valley launched their new, non-homogenized 100% Grass Milk. As a means of introducing our new product to the public, Organic Valley orchestrated many retail events where our brand manager sampled the product, engaged customers in activities and shared literature and coupons. When our west coast tour hit Colorado, Ryan Nicholson was hired to assist the staff brand ambassador with all aspects of introducing the milk to the public at retail locations. Ryan quickly learned the key product points and nutrition information and was able to share this with the public in a thoughtful, engaging manner. He was very helpful with set up, activities engagement and overall public interface with his positive attitude. Overall, he was an excellent ambassador of Organic Valley products and we were delighted to work with him.” — Kay Fandel, Organic Valley Marketing Partnership Coordinator (2009 – 2014)
