My self-summary
I am originally from Southern California, Covina to be exact, I recently moved to Miami and live in a great building in Brickell and love it!

I spent 17 of the last 20 years in NYC and after watching the Trade Centers fall down from my NYC rooftop I thought I was an ordained New Yorker for life, or at least until I retired..... But I realized recently that my work was consuming my life and making it very difficult to maintain a healthy relationship, so I left my 9 year business partnership and the 7 restaurants I put my heart and soul into to move to Miami to improve my quality of life and work on developing some restaurants here and meet the woman of my dreams.

I love to travel, cook at home for friends, dine out, drink red wine preferably from Burgundy, Spain or Northern Italy. I am confident but not arrogant. I am funny and don't take myself too seriously. I am spontaneous and game for just about anything. I plan to explore Miami and live life to the fullest. I love the outdoors, the beach, sun, my pool, a bloody mary at said pool on Sundays, l love music and intend to better my guitar playing skills in the near future. I am super fun and have a great and exciting life but I would like to have that one special person to share it with

Who I am looking for.... well that is a tough question. Someone who loves me for me, loves to laugh, appreciates good food and wine, looks great in a dress but is not afraid to get dirty, I like a smart and successful woman, I am not easily intimidated... I may not have any fancy degrees but appreciate those who do. chemistry and physical attraction are key.

If any of this strikes a chord I want to meet you!

Thanks for reading
What I’m doing with my life
I am a chef and have been working in the restaurant business since my first job in high school. I have cooked and studied many cuisines and worked in the best restaurants in the best cities. I graduated from the Culinary Institute of America before it was cool and trendy to be a chef. I wrote a book called Mod-Mex about 8 years ago. I recently opened a new taco shop and speakeasy tequila bar in Wynwood called Coyo. I keep busy but always make time for the right reasons....
I’m really good at
I am great with my hands...... I can build almost anything. I built a guitar, I rebuilt my NYC apartment, I built my first car a 1971 Firebird that I wish I still had. I am a pretty good cook being that I do it for a living. I also have a very good business sense and sense for style and design.
The first things people usually notice about me
My blue eyes, my sense of humor, my quirky smile....
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Love food all food the crazier the better, sushi, southeast asian, Mexican, Spanish all cuisines. I love wine. Most genres of music especially good old rock and roll, old school punk, 80's. Haven't had much time to read other than cookbooks and food periodicals.
Six things I could never do without
Kenneth my weimaraner (he recently passed away and it was devastating!)
Food and wine
I spend a lot of time thinking about
sex.... just kidding, well maybe not but..... who doesn't? ok then for real; new restaurant concepts, business, new dishes for the menu, ideas for upcoming new cookbook, having a farmhouse in the Hudson Valley, rebuilding a vintage Harley, how nice it would be to come home to the love of my life every night.
On a typical Friday night I am
I'm at work, restaurant business you know.... but when I am done around 10 pm I am ready to rock and roll! Or hang with friends, have a cocktail or two. go out for a bite, hang out at home with my soon to be lady and have some wine and listen to music. sex on the beach, and I don't mean the drink! (kidding again, well???anyway it hasn't happened yet) I am up for just about anything.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm an open book. I am not shy and I am not ashamed. You ask me and I will tell you.... Just better not be afraid to hear the answer. I am not afraid to cry. all experiences bad or good make us who we are, no regrets!
You should message me if
You like great food, nice wine, someone who will cook for you or with you (I love cooking with my girl), you like a mean egg sandwich in the morning, you like long walks on the beach. hmm also if you like nice, honest, strong yet sensitive, passionate, loyal and faithful men and I'm not just sayin that............
PS: I will not send you shirtless selfies or shots of my penis (well unless of course you ask for them......joke...). I am not a stalker, a weirdo, a pervert or just looking to hook up. My profile is honest and what you see is what you get....
The two of us
