Professional Summary

Worked in many fields of visual art in a way that follows my cultural heritage being Romani Gypsy, I have traveled the continent making and selling artwork, doing odd jobs [especially in art, but not exclusively]. My life as an adult had been centered around finding my true calling, and as it turns out, I still only seem aware of my passions rather than where it is that I fall into place. This said, I know my passion for arts and sciences is the place where cooking and my love for food comes into place: It satiates both sides of interest. Kitchens seem to be intense places, and I am an intense person that can handle the heat. This all comes together, along with my interest in cultural heritage cooking, that I think that becoming a cook is my next major career move. I am confident that I will be great in this position and look forward to the opportunity to express myself and have a career in cooking that I can be proud of.
