speaking of food, i play with it for a living. a chef by trade, a mad scientist by design, I spend a lot of time taking vegetables to new and exciting heights. not because i'm vegetarian (though i used to be vegan), but because, in the words of the famed chef Jose Andres, "vegetables are sexy!" I cook lots of other things, too.
i'm a bit of an extremist, not in the fanatical religious sense, but bouncing between experiences. like one of my favorite songs, work hard/play hard, i've been known to work like crazy and then take a month or two (or four) to travel, enjoy or evaluate. this summer i spent much of my time away from the bustling city life and traded it for the beauty and remoteness of montana, wyoming and an island in maine. on the other hand, i'm constantly in search of balance. i used to walk on stilts, so i know balance is possible.
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.
if i were an animal i'd be a wolf...and i'd be dodging bullets in some western states.
