About Me

Dear CS Superheroes, about me is really about you because you create the brilliant, energizing, unforgettable experiences that becomes me. I've learned to make delicious vegan soups from you... experienced the excitement of sharing hummus on the peaks of my rugged local mountains with you.. and learned how to fish for very elusive Alaskan salmon with you beautiful souls.

Maybe when you're not here I do a little acting, wailing on my trumpet, or engineering of some weird software architecture, but that's just to pass a bit of time until you're back on my couch, or I'm on yours, or we've just spent the better part of rainy Saturday sharing apertivos and fresh pasta.

Anyways, enough about me... let's get back to the good stuff... THE IRRESISTIBLE Italian, Indian, Lebanese, Mexican, and Kazhakstani FOOOOD!!

Last year I hosted my now good friend Iris from London and one of my most memorable CS experiences was travelling with her through Alaska after :-D
