I enjoy the invigorating atmosphere of a college campus and am thrilled to return to Athens. You might see my two Bernese Mountain Dogs, Roman and Alexa, along for the ride or on campus with me. I also enjoy traveling, restoring furniture, reading cookbooks, playing soccer, trees, learning about the world around me, and everything to do with food.
