I'm a chef/artist. I grew up in a remote part of Northern California. As a young 18 year old I came to Portland OR to attend art school and never left.
The creative process is key to my life style. My feet are grounded in nature.
My interests radiate out in all directions. Reading novels and poetry, drawing, painting, gardening, cultural events, listening to jazz, classical and old time country music, spectator sports and travel. Travel usually involves exploration. My partner, Marty, and I have double kayak that leads us to calm waters. The Sunshine Coast of British Columbia is our favorite. Marty and I enjoying spending time with friends and family.
