Welcome to my blog! You’ll likely see everything from random thoughts to reflections and observations on the world around us, people, and things I enjoy, and who knows what else.


I love to cook and have done pretty much all of it for the 19 years I’ve been with my wife. We do a lot of entertaining, and love to have people over for dinner parties, BBQ’s, etc. I do an annual BBQ that I call “Meatfest” which generally means feeding 50-75 of our closest friends. This year will be Meatfest 11 (I’ll explain the name at some juncture). Two summers ago, I was honored to be asked to cater a wedding for a friend’s daughter. Came off very well, and there were about 100 very happy guests!

I’m pretty much a self-taught cook, with the exception of a six weekend Professional Cooking series, and a three weekend Butchery class at the California Culinary Academy in San Francisco (now owned by Le Cordon Bleu). Like anything else, learning the basic skills is imperative, but you just must keep cooking to improve your skills.


I’ve played drums and surfed since I was 12, which was MANY years ago, so you’ll undoubtedly see articles on music and the ocean from time to time too.


As I write this (2008), we have a house in Bend, Oregon as well as our temporary abode in the Bay Area. Oregon will also be a frequent topic, as we love it there and have made some incredible friends. Tough place to make a living, unfortunately!
