As always, with love.
After graduating from a culinary arts program, I traveled the world.
I worked at Greens in San Francisco, traveled around Italy and France training and exploring food with chefs in each country, drove across the US exploring food and music every state I drove into, studied coffee in Chicago, worked as a barista and a mixologist, explored food in Sweden, Norway and most recently Brazil.
I owned and operated a 100% organic restaurant and was Sous-Chef de Cuisine at a higher end seasonal restaurant in Dubuque, IA.
Every experience holds new inspiration--- from the people I meet, the chefs and musicians I interact with and the food I explore.
I focus on food sustainability, promoting local wherever local is to you, eating well and making food not only healthy and easy, but fun.
For the past 10 years, I have also performed in two bands.
One focused on performing and developing original music, the other focused on jamming, becoming better musicians and making life fun.
Always explore and check out my recipes, videos and adventures!
Cheers to making this life an awesome one.
Eat well. Travel well. Live well.
