My long term goal is to obtain a career in Hospitality and Management. Responsibilities may include, but are not limited to, batch cooking, catering cooking, table displays, ice carvings, melon monogramming, Word and Excel knowledge. Fast pace environments motivate me.
I enjoy cooking, especially desserts. I love plate up caterings. When it comes down to it though, I really enjoy the basics too, like chopping vegetables and making alfredo sauce. I enjoy learning new dishes and flavors. I also really enjoy planning out a catering, Creating something from scratch and being able to say "I did that" is very motivating.
I also really enjoy music. I play a few insraments such as: the violin, bass guitar, guitar, and mandolin. I've dabbled on others as well. I have been in a few bands and I've recorded three or so audio cd's in my home studio. One day I would like to put a show together with a live band and some display cooking. Cooking to music.
