About me

Yogi, devoted community supporter, farmer's market junkie & deep down, still a salty line cook at heart. 

After living in San Francisco for 22 years I learned some good lessons: the value of being in a culturally diverse place, the benefits of eating local and the mantra that says, "if you do work you love you will always have a rich life". Now that I live in Honolulu, those lessons still apply, except now I am enjoying them in between sipping on exotic fruit smoothies  and taking dips in the ocean.
