I know food.

In my spare time I teach cooking classes at Chicago's Peterson Garden Project, an nonprofit organization that provides affordable home cooking classes for chefs of all levels. PGP also teaches the community how to grow its own food in urban gardens around the city -- on nights and weekends you can find me in my own plot in Chicago's Edgewater neighborhood.

I like to travel (and eat) around the world, though preferably in cold cities. I cook, bake, and make cocktails (often for my cookbook club).
