a lover. of people and food. i play with it for a living.
i am a bit shy, but warm up easily once i know someone. then the
quirky becomes funny, becomes amazing! very grounded without an
ego, but i am awesome.
What I’m doing with my life
defying odds, creating amazing food, helping strangers find smiles,
reveling in the random and absurd. that's just the short list.
I’m really good at
giving great advice (but not following it myself), performing
amazing feats with little to no sleep (i don't recommend this, but
see previous), using chopsticks with both hands, holding doors open

name a few. don't get me started on pre-aughts.
d) too many foods to list them all, but definitely vegetables in
all their seasonal glory. cuisine-wise, i go through phases.
The six things I could never do without
positivity, my friends, my thoughts, a good knife and some fire,
music, beauty, magic, sex, inspiration, and something
unexpected...apparently i can do without caring to count correctly.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
people's warped senses of reality...how so many people can be so
oblivious to their surroundings (yes, you, the person that
immediately halts on a busy subway staircase to check a text
message)...what life would be like if unicorns still roamed the
earth...simple twists of fate...food...and how to create the empire
that I will eventually run.
On a typical Friday night I am
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
i have no secrets and will answer any question regarding my

You should message me if
you like a gentleman...a gentleman with a bit of an edge...
