Summary

I am presently looking for a position which I can contribute from my backgound.

I would like to expand upon my love of the resturant business, either as a cook

or as a trainee.  I belive that I can offer many fresh ideas to any business which would

place myself on staff.  I give and take direction very  easily.  If I had only one thing

to say that I reperesent, It would be "I get things done"

Interests

My interest are many, but off time includes the normal activitys of a man that is

in wonderment of all that is changing around him, it is unbelivable what has

happened and how the workforce has applied it's past mistakes to correct the

future.  I think that a small resturant would need a leader of my sort with the skills I can

bring to the table, "no pun intended"
