new exciting changes


sometimes, things just don't work out in the end.  it was time to move on.  so i started an ice cream company (more info on that later) & returned to the kitchen as the pastry chef at Kata Robata & Azuma.  after 8 months of hiatus, it feels great working 80+ hours a week again.  after a month, the body aches, but oh does it hurt so good.  the mind is able to create again and dishes compose themselves much easier.  i am gracious and humbled by the opportunities that have been offered to me.  i got more support from the community, family & friends than i could ever imagine.  i thank you, and promise to bust my ass to give you the best.  enough of that, here are some pictures.
