"I travel, I write, and I'm hungry for more."

He awoke a fire in us with his words and actions, a longing to be free that could only be satiated through great food, unbridaled travel, and deep, unrestricted conversation. He made cooking cool.

If you are struggling, there are people out there to listen and help. Please call a friend, family member or the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 800.273.8255.
