Personal Quote
He who knows what he dosen't know, knows.
After 25 years in the food industry I have done everything from cleaning the warehouse to cutting the fish to loading the trucks, to driving the trucks to selling the products inside and out to purchasing the products localliy and internationally. I've trained chefs, wait staff and other food professionals on various aspects of the industry while always taking "an hour a day" for me to learn something within my industry.
Passion is the driving force in the food industry and if someone doesn't understand that, they need to find a new job.
Years in the Industry

Great Food Site!
This site was created by a friend and his fiance from the ground up and it is fun, entertaining and inspiring.

It is always interesting to find another disciple of the Guru from Woody Creek. HST could have been the face of the scallop and shrimp industries espousing "better living through chemistry"

HST was and is a favorite read and philisophical guru. My friend that turned me on to this site; Steve Paterson, I call Gonzo as his photo was taken at the Hoover Dam and he has a shirt that Hunter would have been proud of. HST share the same barber, but alas I have him beat by 30-40 pounds! Good Food!!!!

TED: Hamish Jolly: A shark-deterrent wetsuit (and it's not what you think) - Hamish Jolly (2013)

Hamish Jolly, an ocean swimmer in Australia, wanted a wetsuit that would deter a curious shark from mistaking him for a potential source of nourishment. (Which, statistically, is rare, but certainly a fate worth avoiding.) Working with a team of scientists, he and his friends came up with a fresh approach — not a shark cage, not a suit of chain-mail, but a sleek suit that taps our growing understanding of shark vision.

TED: Michel Laberge: How synchronized hammer strikes could generate nuclear fusion - Michel Laberge (2014)

Our energy future depends on nuclear fusion, says Michel Laberge. The plasma physicist runs a small company with a big idea for a new type of nuclear reactor that could produce clean, cheap energy. His secret recipe? High speeds, scorching temperatures and crushing pressure. In this hopeful talk, he explains how nuclear fusion might be just around the corner.

TED: Sarah Lewis: Embrace the near win - Sarah Lewis (2014)

At her first museum job, art historian Sarah Lewis noticed something important about an artist she was studying: Not every artwork was a total masterpiece. She asks us to consider the role of the almost-failure, the near win, in our own lives. In our pursuit of success and mastery, is it actually our near wins that push us forward?

TED: Matthew Carter: My life in typefaces - Matthew Carter (2014)

Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter. In this charming talk, the man behind typefaces such as Verdana, Georgia and Bell Centennial (designed just for phone books -- remember them?), takes us on a spin through a career focused on the very last pixel of each letter of a font.
