About Me


Packing my bags soon...


I'm originally from North Carolina where I spent my younger years growing up exploring the countryside. An avid camper and environmentalist I found myself working for the Forest Service for a short stint then decided to do some organic farming at a few farms up and down the east coast. After vagabonding for a few years I decided to up and move to Chicago for no real reason at all, and have been here for two years now working in kitchens exploring the diverse cuisine the city has to offer.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I put my feet in the ocean then drove/hiked to the tallest peak east of the Mississippi river. From sea-level to 6,684 ft. in a single day. Nine hours of driving, followed by six hours of hiking with an 80 lb. pack.
