Biography
I've been a: dishwasher, busser, server, manager, prep guy, line cook, bartender, and most any job you can have in a restaurant; not to mention my stellar time working in a frozen yogurt shop and working at a hotdog and beer joint in a mall food court.

I'm a culinary school graduate and I grew up in a house where my parents were addicted to eating ethnic food from around the globe.

I spend my free time studying the industry, spirits, beers and (of course) wine.

I wanted to personally invite you to join our discussions in regards to cheeses at the Cheese Group on FohBoh. Every week we introduce a new cheese and invite you to find it in your area, buy it, try it and then dicuss it with us. We could use someone like yourself who could give us some good, positive feedback.
