Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I grew up in Hilo, Hawaii, went to Pacific University in Forest
Grove, Oregon, and studied abroad in Nagoya, Japan. After

kitchen manager in 3 years. My next step is becoming a sous
I like to keep an active lifestyle with exercise and practicing
jiujitsu. I am a brown belt in Brazilian jiujitsu and actively
compete in tournaments.
