I have spent fifteen of the last seventeen years working in the culinary industry, with the last few of those spent as the chef managing a restaurant. Recently I have begun to pursue another passion, writing. I am currently pursuing the writing side of the culinary industry and so far it has been rewarding. I have chosen to tutor, specifically in the subjects of cooking, writing/reading, and the computer due mostly to my knowledge, experience and overall desire for these fields of study.
I hold a degree from the California Culinary Academy and certifications from the National Restaurant Association. These not only allow me the in depth knowledge of the culinary field, but through the years I have gained a wealth of experience in time management and human resource management. During this time I have had experience with interns and some tutoring as well.
I have almost ten years of personal experience in building and operating personal computers that are Microsoft based. I am well versed in the frustrations and joys of putting together a PC and dealing with the mountain of software that entails.
The writing aspect of my life is rather new as a professional. I currently attend Black Hills State University to acquire a degree in Journalism and English and currently have a 4.0 GPA (I am pretty early into it). I have begun writing for a web only magazine and am pursuing another online publication.
I have also spent almost a year tutoring when working as the Executive Chef at a retreat in Michigan. It was on a completely volunteer basis and only seasonal throughout the winter during the school year. Though it was tough to work into a chefs schedule, it was, nonetheless, incredibly rewarding.
I will add, in closing, that if my resume and references are needed I am more than happy to furnish them.
