I do not think of my self as an award winning chef, but a darn good cook ! I have won the the Texas Rovers Chili cook off twice and been a close runner up a few times. Also my Chili Rellenos did not win the Texas Rovers Iorn chef contest, but I did not see any one not scarf them up after the compation.

 

when I grow up I would like to be a photo journalist. I  have had some articles published along with some photos. (click here) to check them out.

I can consider my self an award winning photographer , being second runner up in the Mantec photo contest.
