Do not go where the path may lead,
go instead where there is no path and leave a trail

#Travel #Foodie #Nature

Ever since I was a young chap, I've always gravitated towards nature.  Whether it was constructing a hut like home down in the woods (very hobbit style), or collecting dead animal bones and bringing them back to my house to study, I've always loved it.  

Ten years later, I’m studying Biology at University. Mix a little psychology, philosophy, and evolution credits, I now feel safe to sit back and observe the world from my viewpoint.  And it's a beautiful thing.  

Traveling has helped accelerate my interest in becoming a better person.  Not wanting to waste a single moment on anything that will distract from becoming better.  And we have a lot of distractions these days.  

I’ve learned to gather and build experience blocks to form a solid foundation for myself to view the world. And I’m still building…

My food inspirations stem from a couple of the restaurants I've managed before, which also happen to be two of the most highly sought out places to dine in our country, if not the world (Au Cheval-Chicago // Spoon and Stable-MPLS).  That gives me a little credit in knowing what I'm talking about ; )

Side note:  I read Bourdain's Kitchen Confidential a long time ago.  When he wanted to film his show inside Au Cheval when I was managing, we turned him down b/c we'd have to give up four tables for two hours, I learned a lot about restaurants that day.  Cold blooded…except to the guests!!!!

Enjoy the blog. Oh, also music.  Because where would we be without music??  I hope you'll get something out of this!

Aaaand check out the photo gallery. Any photo you’re interested in, shoot me a message via connect. Or any crazy idea you have, I’d love to hear it!
