Sharing my life via my vlog, photography, and food



I've experienced a lot of fun, interesting, and amazing things in my 50+ years of life. And there's so much more to see and do. And I want to share that with people.

I'm the father of 5 children and a grandfather to 3. I've been Dad for more than 30 years and my youngest is only 12, so my kids are a big part of my life. Checkout some of my vlogs and you'll see what I mean.

I'm a techie that grew up in Silicon Valley then made the Seattle area my home more than 25 years ago. I have 30+ years of technology industry experience from tech support to CEO.  

I'm a private chef because cooking is a passion of mine. People hire me to provide a fine-dining experience for small intimate events.

I'm an entrepreneur. I've started several successful ventures over the years. I particularly enjoy creating products and businesses that represent the unique style and culture of the Pacific Northwest.

I'm a photographer. Between my kids, the traveling that I do, and the beautiful scenery of the region where I live, I have plenty of opportunities to take advantage of my camera. 




Eating is about sharing and tasting.
