I’ve always thought Bio’s were a little over rated. Really what is it that people want to know? Well, let’s see. I was born and raised in Oregon. I like long walks on the beach and I’m a Cancer. Getting bored yet? I thought so. Here’s the cliff notes. During my business career I have traveled coast to coast and back again. I have tried cuisines from the plain and ordinary, to the extreme, that even Andrew Zimmern would be proud of.
I’m not going to tell you I’m a chef, writer or cuisine expert. What I am is a regular guy who has been living off restaurant food for the past 15 years. Mostly due to the fact I have been living out of hotels. But I won’t lie. I am not nor would I say I’m a good cook. At the same time I haven’t set fire to anything, but I could see that happening. While traveling from coast to coast I have had the privilege of trying all different types of cuisine’s at that prestigious 5* rating to food trucks (where I have gotten better meals at times). The one thing is I never say no to a new experience.
I started watching Food Shows a few years ago. Seeing all these incredible meals that made my mouth water. Then I thought to myself. Really, how good is that food? Would I get the same meal if I ate there? After making a special trip to a restaurant featured on Diners Drive-inn’s and Dives I got one answer. . . No. It wasn’t anything like what was portrayed on Network TV. It was a disheartening feeling, but then I thought. They can’t all be like that, right? This is where the idea for FOOD SHOWS EXPOSED came into play.
