I'm big hearted, sarcastically hilarious (or perhaps just an ass-hole, if you lack a sence of humor), humbly-pretentious, ambitishious, creative, spontaneous, im real good at going with the flow, and always up for an adventure, ummm what else.....
So I'm pretty new to and still getting used to my 30's and its a bit strange to think of my self as a real "grown-up" now. I had my 20s all mapped out and did pretty much everything I wanted to. Made a nice living in the Los Angeles real estate market and dabbled on and off in restaurants/catering and event production.
I realized one day I just wasn't satisfied with the LA/Beverly Hills life anymore and wanted...no, needed a change and something more fulfilling from life.
Ive bummed around here and there for the last 18 months, reconnecting with old friends and family, trying to sort it all out. I finally concluded I really want a career in the culinary-hospitality world but in a not as well known or saturated market, where I can really make a name for myself. So I'm excited to relocate to Pittsburgh, PA at the end of summer and pursing it full force with an old "ride-or-die" of mine.
Not taking myself too seriously
Making strangers into friends
Giving great advise to others but not taking my own:)
Being loyal as FUCK!
Tantalizing your taste buds
Making you LOL

My favorite type of food is Spanish. I love Spanish cuisine and wine, they can never go wrong!
I love Mediterranean cuisines too, the whole region; Provence, southern Italian, Greek, Turkish, Middle East.
I'm real big on seafood, I can eat fish any day of the week.
And never will turn down a great sandwich or salad
My knife kit
Living near bodies of water
Master minding some sort of scheme
Laghing at everything and nothing
