My self-summary
I am most passionate about the things that bring me happiness -

traveling and experiencing different cultures, sharing good food and drink with a few close friends,
eating fresh New England oysters and clams, chocolate, coffee, massage, acupuncture, rollerblading, feeling healthy, swimming,
just pressed olive oil, pulling baby purple carrots from the ground
canoeing down the river (I'm from Missouri)
the wines from Burgundy, the Sistine Chapel
perfectly roasted whole chicken
observing tradition, breaking routine

I am creative, fun with a tendency towards goofiness.
What I’m doing with my life
I did work as a chef of a restaurant on the island of Martha's Vineyard the last 5 years, serving presidents, etc.

Just moved to LA and looking at some interesting chef opportunities.
I’m really good at
Going with the flow.

Leading the way.
The first things people usually notice about me
Help me with this one.
Bowlegged probably or my air of sophistication.
