Hi all, been lurking on the site for years, figured it's time to make a real account I'm an exec chef in the Denver metro, currently running an independent modern-American restaurant in Aurora. Started out in the industry when I was 16 as "sandwich artist" at Subway and continued to do the QSR and chain thing for the next 8 years before I got serious. I went through a Le Cordon Bleu program back in '05, and been working my way around and up for the last decade. Been in hotels, country clubs & catering, but my heart is here in upscale restaurant dining. Anyway, cheers!
