Born in the valley, raised in the Mexican communities of Lennox & Inglewood, and educated in icy-cold ivory towers of the east coast. Realized I had a deathly aversion to suits and moved back to LA to pursue a culinary career. Along the way, I realized I kind of have a thing for strategy. So now I'm working on bringing the two together. When I'm not doing that, I'm eating and drinking coffee. And begrudgingly fitting in lame workouts to avoid going beyond pleasant plumpness.
