Who I Am

I was born in 1981 and raised on my 7th generation family ranch in Boerne, TX. After high-school I hitch-hiked across the United States, alternatively loving and hating its foods, cultures and contradictions.





I moved to Milan in 2004 and fell head-first into Italian culture, cuisine, and lifestyle. Here, my passion for the refined simplicity of Italian cuisine brought me to more deeply appreciate  my own American culinary roots.
