About Me:
I am a coffee fanatic. I love making coffee almost as much as I enjoy drinking it.

Outside of these, I love music and bad movies. I play piano and guitar.

I LIVE to cook, particularly grilling, smoking, and anything I can do outside. Inside though, the kitchen is MY room. I don't even let my wife do the dishes. The food-i-ness is my forte.

It was a pleasure to have some bella vita pulled by the Big Daddy in Chicago. We kept finding ourselves gravitating to your booth everyday for the red head. Best wishes for all your hard work to pay off in Portland.
