My self-summary
-professional chef - started when I was 13 and haven't really looked back
-had my own restaurant, now planning to go work for some really great ones around the world again
-rock climbing is a big passion of mine
-only have a motorcycle but don't think of myself as a 'motorcycle guy'
-originally from the east coast, lived in numerous cities in the states (east and west coast) and in Spain for a while
-don't drink coffee (have all of the natural energy I need as soon as I wake up) - but I'll definitely drink wine with you
-my two favorite smells are the scent of freshly cut grass and the smell of asphalt during the first 10 minutes during a warm summer rain - it takes me back to simpler times
-have traveled most of Europe, now planning an extended trip to Asia in the next few months.
-sucker for redheads and accents (my head almost exploded backpacking through Ireland)
-for the enthusiasm that I show when watching professional tennis people often assume that I must play tennis and be very good at it - truth is I've never played other than messing around with friends (teach me?)
-when my brothers and I pretended to be ninja turtles, I was Donatello
-rotating facial hair between clean shaven and very beardy - depends on my mood - currently medium beardiness
-truly love and appreciate art in its many forms whether is be still or moving (always looking for an excuse/partner to go to a museum, ballet, performance, etc)
-would definitely consider myself a feminist, but also a defender of age, sexual preference and race against ignorance and bigotry as well - let's just be good to each other, ok people?
-big nerd - love the science/chemistry of food - currently the cookbook collection is hovering right around 450
- *life goal* (one of them) - buy a 50' sailboat and sail around the world, taking my time, diving and photographing all along the way - I'm trying to make this happen much sooner than later - adventuring when you're old is cool, but adventuring while you're still young is much cooler

I just got out of something serious, so that's not what I'm looking for. Just looking to drink wine, make friends and have some fun with someone new. If something develops no need to fight it. If not, great new friends are always welcome.
What I’m doing with my life
Hopefully taking the next step on the yellow brick road to greatness. One day I will meet the great and powerful Oz!

But in all seriousness gearing up to travel around the world and work in some top 50 kitchens for the next year or so.
I’m really good at
Attempting to be humble when asked about stuff I'm good at.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Currently reading: Devil in the White City.
So far - it's fucking incredible.
The six things I could never do without
Meh, we can do without more than we think.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The song walking on sunshine is bullshit. Your foot will always cast a shadow on the ground making it almost impossible to ever walk on sunshine. Unless you are walking upside down on a glass surface.
On a typical Friday night I am
Having a good time whether it be with a drink in my hand or a book in my lap (maybe both) or possibly whatever you have in mind. I'm pretty easy going and love doing anything I've never done before. The gauntlet has been thrown. Show me what you've got.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm left handed, and never think about it until someone every once in a while notices and says something, and then I feel happy and special for about 12 seconds, then forget all about it and go about my merry way.
