leaving mendocino county friends and clients beside the everchanging blue pacific, with its astonishing burgundy late afternoon light, the constant awareness of gentle giants sliding by in the deep, wildlife all around, so much a part of every day...
i became a chocolatier on the north coast, learned and dreamed, pursuing an understanding of chocolate with passion and determination, weaving together the tenets of a changing life, finding new channels to swim in.
i hope to return one day, but now it is the excitement and diversity of the bay i once more embrace...so many changes in the 6+ years i have been away. i survey the local scene here in Oakland, want to get involved and work to realize my dream of growing enough to create new knowledge and work opportunities for others.
let's see how it goes: i'll put my whole heart into this effort, hoping you try my chocolate and become part of the story.
