I'm a NYC fireman working in woodside queens, i've been on the job for over 10 years and hopefully 10 more. I'm very fortunate to have a job I love, not many people can say that. I was a chef before I became a fireman, I received my associates from NECI a cooking school in Vt. I did the whole cooking thing for 5 years before i got on the FDNY. I mostly cook for the guys at work and occasionally out in the Hamptons during the summer. I bought a house last year and just missing that special woman in my life. I like to travel when I can, just recently got back from New Zealand for 2 weeks, long flight but worth it.
