I live in the East Village, and walk to work. It's pretty amazing.
Moved here from Miami 6 years ago on a whim and a job offer. It's a bit surreal as you get older and you look back on your life and you see those fork in the road decisions that you made that lead your life on a completely different path. Feels really good when you know it was a good one.
Choosing to bartend and work in restaurants in college was another one. Helped turn a somewhat shy awkward teenager into the big ball of awesome that I am now. Ha. Also comes in handy that I can make a solid cocktail when needed!
Oh and food. I looooove food. And you should too. Although judging by most profiles on here it doesn't seem like that will be a problem haha...
