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.

The Ten Dollar Bottle of White Zinfandel

Posted on March 18, 2008 at 1:39pm 15 Comments

I like Zinfandel. I buy Zinfandel. I order Zinfandel. It’s affordable. And sure- there are a lot of them that just rip your head right off (“nothing wrong with that,” some would argue), there are many that just fill your mouth with way too much pepper (“not enough,” some would argue), and there are some made in that really beautiful “claret” style. You can do a lot of things with this grape (“one thing too many,” many would heatedly… Continue

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.

TED TALKS VIDEO

TED: Jeremy Kasdin: The flower-shaped starshade that might help us detect Earth-like planets - Jeremy Kasdin (2014)

Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them -- yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" that allows a telescope to photograph planets from 50,000 kilometers away. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."

TED: Norman Spack: How I help transgender teens become who they want to be - Norman Spack (2013)

Puberty is an awkward time for just about everybody, but for transgender teens it can be a nightmare, as they grow overnight into bodies they aren't comfortable with. In a heartfelt talk, endocrinologist Norman Spack tells a personal story of how he became one of the few doctors in the US to treat minors with hormone replacement therapy. By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)

TED: Jennifer Senior: For parents, happiness is a very high bar - Jennifer Senior (2014)

The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it. Why is parenthood filled with so much anxiety? Because the goal of modern, middle-class parents—to raise happy children—is so elusive. In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.

TED: David Brooks: Should you live for your résumé ... or your eulogy? - David Brooks (2014)

Within each of us are two selves, suggests David Brooks in this meditative short talk: the self who craves success, who builds a résumé, and the self who seeks connection, community, love -- the values that make for a great eulogy. (Joseph Soloveitchik has called these selves "Adam I" and "Adam II.") Brooks asks: Can we balance these two selves?
