I have a corporate job, but in my free time I am always looking at different ways to connect with my community and the City of Chicago through volunteer work! I am a lifelong Chicagoan, and truly love this city. I am married and have 5 year old son who I hope one day shares my love to give back, but also my love of cooking.

Why are you volunteering with Pilot Light?

I love the idea of teaching how food connects us to other, how it affects our lives and how we feel each day. Pilot light is a different program then I have worked with in the past, so I am excited to be a part of this large effort around education through food.

What is your favorite food or meal?

My favorite food to COOK is soup. It simmers all day and the smell brings me back to being a kid! My favorite food to EAT is seafood. I admit this is something I struggle cooking well, so love to go out and order a good piece of fish or scallops- cooked to perfection.
