Four Bricks
Executive Chef

         Most can view food for a solely utilitarian purpose. I can understand why. Growing up in Whittier, Ca, a small "burb" out on the far east side of LA, there wasn't much dining to be had. A few diners and local spots but nothing "fun". It was the same old same old. My aunt on the other hand, would make food, and take us to places, that would have you thinking and longing for that experience again. She made me fall in love with food.
          Food is not just eating. Food is the whole encompassing experience. Arriving, smelling, conversing, discovering. The experience around food can be so many things. It can teach somebody creativity, and patience. It can form leaders, engineers, and forward thinkers.
         I had worked in a restaurant for a few years before I realized, this is what I want to do. I wanted to be good at this and be able to pass this on like it was passed on to me. I work everyday to become better and stay progressive in this field. I put myself around people that understand that and we support each other in the common goal.
