A brief picture of what I’m like
I am a chef in a Michelin Recommended restaurant located in Boystown, Chicago, Illinois. I decided in 2015 to settle down and enjoy a quiet life in the kitchen so I went back to school to earn my Associate of Applied Science degree in Culinary Arts. I’m having the time of my life cooking and I love discovering new ingredients and dishes to work with. I could list a slew of words that would describe how I am or what I’m about but it’s so tough talking about oneself and it seems so canned. My top 3 things that I am CONSTANTLY thinking about really are food, drink, and travel.
I love traveling somewhere because you never know what’s going to happen when you get there. Which now that I think about it sounds odd to say, or write, for someone who is a control freak. (That’d be me). Traveling breaks up your everyday life where you’re knee (or neck) deep in the day-to-day machinations of the human race. I was born and raised just west of the Columbia Gorge in Washington State. I was able to enjoy the mountains, the rivers, and even the Pacific Ocean on a regular basis. One thing that I have always been aware of is not forgetting my surroundings, no matter where I am in the world.
I consider myself an introvert masquerading as an extrovert. I enjoy quiet nights, long walks on the beach…ha. Kidding. Although they are great, you can usually catch me joined at the hip of my partner as we are off causing some sort of ruckus. Some of my favorite things are any large body of water, nachos, and definitely brownies. Brownies are my friend. Actually, my favorite things list has gotten quite large lately and the things I hate have shrunk. I mean, I still hate bananas, spiders, and orange juice pulp. That will probably never change. Sorry.
