I'm a 13 year radio vet that turned in his head phones for a knife. I'm currently the chef and co-owner of Orion in the Manette neighborhood of Bremerton WA. I was born and raised on the East Side of the state - though I just recently moved back after a 10 or so year stint in Oregon.

As you can tell by the list, there are several football teams I support: Seattle Sounders, Real Madrid (which I was recently told is the Hipster double) & Chelsea. I'm also now a contributor to SBN's Real Madrid blog "Managing Madrid".
