Personal Quote
It's hard to lead looking back
My first paying restaurant gig was back in 1981, as a waiter and cook for a hotel restaurant. That job later turned into a job a KBob's. Got my first taste of management there, while still in high school. Worked in restaurants, bars, nightclubs, and radio stations through college. Managed a mom and pop Italian American restaurant from 1990-1993, bounced around for a year. Started working for my current employer back in 1994. Been there ever since! I was born in Schaffhausen, Switzerland and grew up in Marshall, Texas.

Babe's is the absolute BOMB! ! ! Best fried chicken hands down in the DFW Metroplex. The Roanoke location is still the best. The perfect example of keeping it simple and serving a great product.

Well my company is a franchise of Applebee's and the buy out didn't affect our company. However, we do stick to the basics of corporate. We try to make the majority of everything unique. The best thing from our company right now is our new and improved Perfect Beers. Only 10 of our store serve the Perfect Beer currently. We are rolling the next batch out in April. It is very exciting!

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.

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" positioned 50,000 km from a telescope to enable imaging of planets about distant stars. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."
