I believe you have to be mentally ill to become a professional restaurateur. But here I am! Nice to meet you all. I went to Peter Kump's in NYC years ago, and have worked in restaurants since. I am currently working a one-year tenure in every nice place in Lafayette, Louisiana. After this, I am going to open a brasserie in New Orleans as a chef-owner. I have a Master's Degree in an academic subject, but I found teaching to be lots of administrative stuff, very little fun time, and no money haha. So nice to meet you all! I look forward to talking shop with my fellow culinary artists.
