I'm originally from Florida but lived in Brazil, Mexico, and Venezuela during my elementary school years. I lived in New York and Chicago after high school before the food industry brought me to DC.
I'm starting a new job as a Restaurant Consultant. This will be the first in my career. I'll be working in an office setting the majority of my time instead of being on my feet for 12 to 16 hours a day!!
My family is incredibly important to me. They exposed me at a young age to diverse cultures and cuisines that have driven my passion for cooking and traveling.
My God Daughter is extremely important to me. It blows my mind how every time I see her she has learned something new! She always makes me happy despite everything else. :0)
I like to consider myself a feminist. The inequality and sexual harassment are rampant in my industry. My hope is to help make changes to the industry now that I'm consulting and can help make a major change in the industry internally.
Always finding a solution to a problem.
Trying new foods. I will literally eat anything except black licorice.
Taking broken things apart that I don't know how to fix and then putting it back together to have it magically work.
Always being there for my friends and family.
Doctor Who, Walking Dead, Orange is the New Black, The Following, The Newsroom, Dexter, House of Cards, Cosmos, GOT, Shameless, Homeland, Big Bang Theory and always looking for new suggestions.
Also -- Family Guy, American Dad, Angry Beavers, Doug, and Rocko's Modern Life.
Star Wars, Back to the Future, Gone in 60 Seconds, Patch Adams, Matrix, Harry Potter movie and book, Lord of the Rings, The Dark Knight (I got to cook for the actors when they were filming in Chicago!)
I love books!! When I was younger I never read. Now I go though at least 2 to 3 books a week. I just reread the Harry Potter series! After I finish reading Robopocalypse, I'm going to start reading all the Star Wars books!
My distaste for the word foodie. Warning - the subject lends itself to ranting.
What I should cook for my friends. A salad, some pasta, a whole pig?
You'd rather spend the money on the honey moon then the wedding.
Anything above intrigued you.
