The Fun Stuff

What is one thing people may not know about you? That I WILL own and operate a small farm before I die, and it will be awesome.

What's the best meal you've ever had? Every morsel I had while in Europe - every buttery, herby, creamy, cheesy, duck-and-pear-and-chocolate-filled bite that I could cram in my gullet!

What's the worst meal you've ever had? Well, we’ve all had crappy meals, but the worst I’ve ever had was the last portions of my Grandmother's cooking that we saved in our freezer. It was sad because we knew we’d never have it again.

If you could choose any three people, dead or alive, to have dinner with, who would they be? Samuel Beam (Iron and Wine), Teddy Roosevelt, and my Grandmother, one more time.

When not working, where are your favorite spots to hang out? Indian Lookout in Spruce Creek, PA; any establishment that wishes to serve me excellent food; and anywhere involving mountains, endless trees, and solitude.

What's your favorite Refinery dish? That is SO hard to choose! It's a toss-up between the brekfus’ and the potatoes with vinegar caramel.

What's the last concert you went to? Railroad Earth & Green Sky Bluegrass at Red Rocks in Colorado.
