Alvin Levarity

Chef / Production Manager

My name is Alvin and I am from the beautiful Island of Grand Bahama, which is located in The Bahamas. After graduating high school and starting college at the age of 16 I made the decision to make culinary arts my career. Seeing the effect food can have on people made choosing this profession that much easier. I take great joy and pleasure in seeing the emotions an amazing meal can evoke.

Edison Orrego Vergara

Dining Hall Manager

My Name is Edison Orrego, I was born and raised in Medellin, Colombia. I graduated from Brighton High school in 2009 and I have been in the Hospitality and Dining Services industry for about 10+ years.

Beginning my hospitality and management carrier back in 2007, I was hired by Restaurant Associates at the museum of fine arts in Boston -- the place where I decided to build my career as a Restaurant Manager. I worked at the MFA for about 7 years, and 5 and a restaurant manager. Restaurant Associates gave me the opportunity to take all the adequate classes, courses and training that made me a successful and professional Restaurant Manager.  In 2015 I was promoted by restaurant associates and was offered a Hospitality and management position at Harvard Business School where I worked for two years. In 2017 I was hired by Harvard University Dining Services and I had the honor to join Adams House management team.

A Boston resident since 2000, I love spending time with my family. I’m a dog lover, the father of two lovely beagles, and I love to play soccer.

Team Adams and I are here to serve you, take care of you, and most important to make sure every meal exceeds all of our student’s expectations. The students are the most important people on campus and we are happy and proud to serve you and be part of this organization.
