I have many passions, and I try to live every day without taking advantage of the fact that life can change very quickly. Family, friends, my dog, cooking, cars, motorcycling, hiking, traveling are just some of the things that are a large part of my life. As is sincerity. Whoever I'm with, or whatever I'm doing, I like to be without the distractions that take away from enjoying the moment.
I cook professionally, so food is a passion but also how I earn a living. I probably work too much. Here in Santa Barbara in my time away from work I love to be outside, preferably with my girlfriend Nikki and our dog Olive.
