Who am I...? Oh, right! I've got that part figured out!
I'm a classically-trained professional cook, who left the Philadelphia food scene in 2010 and eventually became a member/owner of a local hippie-type co-op in the Cascades. In addition to cooking, I assist with kitchen and general business administration; in April, I was elected to serve on the co-op's Board of Directors.
I've got a mind for numbers and my work, and a big heart for loving others. The latter sometimes belies my sharp wit and aptitude for comic mischief. I value sharing one-on-one time, where I seem to forge deeper connections. When hanging-out with groups of people, I'm actually quite shy.
A country-boy, originally from Maryland's Appalachia, the Pacific Northwest has come to redefine my concept of "home".
