As a food and beverage enthusiast, I'm on the ever-winding journey of life in the food lane. I have a background starting at 14 years old as a theme park food vendor, from there a barista and cook at a local Chicago confectionery/bistro, take-out reception at a pizza joint, hostess for a steak house, waitress in fine dining and casual places corporate and non, bartender at various sports bars and night clubs, manager for family-owned and signature hotel restaurants, but forever an admirer of the culinary arts.
