Maybe it was my experience at the Food Network, but I really value a beautiful meal. I love trying new foods—though my all-time favorite cuisine is Vietnamese. Can’t get enough of the spice!
I was born in Texarkana, TX but grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio. I’ve also lived in Hampton (Virginia), Miami, Washington, D.C., and even Mexico City, Mexico.
We love to explore Silicon Valley through hikes or go for relaxing runs at a nearby beach. Check him out on Instagram.
I’m inspired by colors, cuisines and scenery from different parts of the world and make sure to carve out time for passport stamps. In the U.S. or abroad, I love to experience new things.
