"Working as an Executive Banker, to becoming a full time Pit-Master, has been a huge transition for me! Cooking has always been second nature to me, but it has been very daunting to leave the comfort of Corporate America, to do what I love most. My life has been full of challenges, especially throughout my childhood, however, this has shaped me to create opportunities for my family and the people around me. Plus...Delicious Food!"
