A typical day in my life includes…

I wake up and watch about an hour of TV because it takes me a little bit to get going. I leave the house head to Lux Central and get my iced Americano. Then it’s off to the restaurant. I get to the restaurant about 10:30am and it’s where I spend the rest of the day. I get home about 10:30-11pm, shower again, relax and off to bed. Nothing too crazy.

I was born…

Seattle, Washington.

My favorite thing about Arizona…

obviously I love the weather. I love that phoenix is a big city with a small town feel.

I’m listening to…

Leon Bridges or anything 90s hip hop and R&B.

My family…

my family is the most important thing in my life. They always have my back no matter what. They live in Spokane, Washington, where I was raised.

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be…

my grandparents, who passed away years ago. I have so many awesome memories with them, like cooking with my grandma and golfing and building tree houses with my grandpa. There was always Sinatra playing at dinnertime. As an adult I would love to experience that one more time.

One thing I cannot live without…

I LOVE chips and dip.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

a movie star.

I’m inspired by…

being different. Change, progression, and the future.

The one person who motivates me is…

I have two new business partners that push me in their own ways that bring out a fire in me to push forward to be a better business owner, better leader, and better man. My sister is an even number one also. She is such a beautiful person and has become an incredible woman. If I am only half of what she is, the sun will keep shining.

The perfect day would be…

I have a group of best friends that live throughout the country. We have been friends for 20 plus years. Every year we do a vacation together, just one day with them would be perfect.

My first job was…

USPS, I was a mail sorter at the airport when I was 18.

My favorite escape…

the movie theater.

My life…

so far its better than I could of ever imagined it to be. It gets better and better each year. I have an awesome family and strong support system here in Phoenix.

I’m currently working on…

making my restaurant an institution in the neighborhood.

Always…

move forward.

Never…

backwards.

Favorite Quote…

I love eating out. It’s one of my favorite pastimes. I love the whole concept of a restaurant. I love the idea of sitting down to eat. I love the idea of someone choosing some wine to go with the food. I love the idea of smelling it, of drinking and then tasting and savoring the food. I just love it. As a customer I’m the simplest guy to cook for. I would never apply the same mental torture I give myself as a chef when I’m eating out, because I’m off duty. For me, sitting at the table is a sacred moment because you’re sharing and talking, laughing, and joking with your loved ones. It’s not about who you are as a chef. I can take my jacket off and become a customer very easily. I would never criticize another chef, ever because it’s not my job. I’m just a cook.”

Biggest Dream…

to live in Phoenix half the year and the Northwest the other half.

My Pet Peeve(s)…

when people are not ready on time.
