Personal Highlights

In my free time I enjoy hanging out with my friends and family. I have 3 dogs that take up a quite a bit of my time and attention. In the warmer months I spend a time riding my bike and going on Ragbrai. Winters call for indoor activities like bowling league, darts and my love for watching college basketball. It should also be no surprise that I love to check out new restaurants and bars whenever possible!

Personal Highlights

From a young age I always liked to cook and found in high school that I had developed a passion for the culinary arts. The last two years at my high school a friend and I were given the task of teaching the class and making quizzes for the other students. I took a break from cooking and moved to California where I went to college and got my solar technician degree from coast CCI in only 7 months. I then returned to Iowa shortly after where solar wasn’t that big so I was back to finding other things I like to do and was a property manager for a year then did flooring and installation for a short time. Soon I came to find myself working for the Machine Shed where I started out bussing tables. I then started cooking a year later and moved on to doing hot prep. I was hooked on cooking again and that’s, I guess me in a nut shell for the most part.
