Follow your Bliss…(Vagabond chef)
Tomorrow it will be 4 months since I moved back to the midwest and sadly it will be my last. Minnesota has the most special place in my heart, my brothers, my best friend of nearly 15 years, friends close enough to call family, my home for nearly 3 years, memories of shows, dinners, dates, roommates, let downs, hardships, beauty, and destruction. Every single one of those have brought me to this moment of my life, The Leap. Wednesday I am getting in my car and with nothing but faith in God I am driving to California to fulfill my dream of working at The French Laundry, Bouchon, and Ad Hoc. A 32 hour drive costing every penny I have to show up at the back door of the restaurants of my dreams with my knives in hand and the drive of a chef. I have never been more scared in my life yet God has placed this strange peace on my heart. All my life I have known only to follow the true passions of my life, giving those passions everything I have. I wish that I could fit seeing everyone of my Minnesota friends tomorrow, I am so thankful for everyone one of you. Its time for me to get back in the world of haute cuisine and nothing excites me more.
