I live in a small town in central Illinois. It's the same town I grew up in, and I like it because it's quiet and small. I've lived in cities and larger towns, but I'm just a small town boy. I work at Caterpillar Inc. I'm an assembler, and I help make the drivetrain for the largest off highway truck in the world. The Cat 797. I enjoy growing plants in and out. I love learning about them and getting my hands dirty giving them tlc. But, I guess my main interest is cooking. I love it; especially desserts.
