Cue the "I don't normally do this" intro...
I was born and raised in San Diego with the exception of my college years spent in Santa Cruz, a place that holds a special place in my heart. I recently began a Culinary Arts degree program in Napa Valley and am ECSTATIC to be back up in the Bay Area. I absolutely love where we live and try and do as much as possible to enjoy it- get outside, eat good food, drink good wine, see live music, practice yoga, dive bars, farmers markets, etc
Driven, loyal, introspective and sarcastic.. I love people; I managed a restaurant for a long time and thrive on the constant interaction. It is THE thing that keeps me dedicated to a demanding and often chaotic profession. I am pursuing a culinary degree to round out my professional experience with the ultimate goal of opening my own restaurant. Attending this particular school has been a life long dream of mine and I feel absolutely blessed to be here. I think that it's important to have goals, work hard, smile as often as possible, surround yourself with those you love, and try not to take yourself too seriously.I'm pretty sure I have the best family and friends in the world.
I'm big on smiles and good witty exchanges. Eye contact says a lot. I'm into honesty, sincerity, and real interactions- getting too old for that game playing crap. I'm looking for someone equally as driven and motivated; someone confident in themselves and their ambitions who also understands the importance of a work/ life balance; a partner in crime, if you will. Unwavering optimism required: life's too short.
How bout an email, not a wink.
