I love meeting new people. I am kind of quirky and very proud of that fact. I love exploring new places in the area. I'm sometimes sarcastic but equally sweet. I LOVE FOOD!! In order to begin to try to understand who I am, you have to understand that food is a big part of my existence. I was raised in the south by a family of women who concocted dishes that would make a person's head spin. I grew up in a place with fresh produce and fresh seafood(so I guess you could say I'm spoiled by it). I love cooking for others. Seeing the joy that food can bring to other people makes my heart soar. So, if you haven't guessed...I'm a Chef! My food love backed by a degree and some kitchen cred. I love open and honest communication. Sometimes, I have been accused of being somewhat blunt(it's true). Sometimes the honest truth hurts, but I can always dish it with a nutty caramel coating if need be. My second love is writing. I have been a writer of sorts since before I can even remember. I recently moved to to California from the East Coast. It's a different animal but I love everything that it's teaching me at the moment. It really is a happier place to be! Feel free to send me a message, the worst that can happen is a conversation, right?
