About Me

I'm a third-generation chef, award-winning writer, columnist, and culinary instructor. I live with my family in Southwest Washington, and operate the "MY KITCHEN Outreach Program" for at-risk and under-served youth. My writing has appeared in hundreds of publications, including sixteen “Chicken Soup for the Soul” anthologies. I'm also a reoccurring guest-chef on AM Northwest, and write a monthly parenting column for Vancouver Family Magazine.
