I really got my start the first time I traveled to Mexico. I was 14 years old and I planned for our family to travel to Mexico City. Now remember that I am from Oklahoma City...the sidewalks roll up at 8:30pm. We landed in Mexico City and it was bustling! We stayed in a hotel on the zocalo and I felt in love. From there on, I couldn't stay away. As far as feeling successful--it really comes with the stuff that matters. My daughter, my wife. The work that I do not only in the restuarant, but with the local farmers, that kind of feeling is success to me.
