<p>I'm a graphic artist who designs signs and vehicle graphics. I have found a competitive streak in myself where cooking is concerned and have been an active competition cook for the last few years. I'm cooking my way to a kitchen remodel! I have also found a love of conceptionally creating, filming and editing cooking videos and hope to have my own cooking show eventually. I'm always thinking out-of-the-box and that's why my favorite shows are Chopped, Top Chef, and all other competition-type cooking shows. I also found a love of food photography... food is beautiful!</p>
