Hi I'm Kevin

I'm a big time Foodie. I love learning about food and how food intertwines with different cultures around the world. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a father of 4 boys, married to a beautiful Tahitian woman and love spending time with my family at home. I have a PhD in Food Science and spend most of my days creating new foods at work or cooking for my family at home. My life seems to revolve around food: whether it was making lobster raviolis in Colorado, growing quinoa on the Altiplano of Bolivia, baking bread in Colombia, or milking cows in Costa Rica…each new opportunity has allowed me to increase my love for different cultures and the people that were willing to share them with me. I love to spend time in the garden and my children think the only books I know how to read are cook books. Finding ways to make the people around me smile also makes me happy and I have witnessed many times the power that warm chocolate chip cookies, straight from the oven, can have on even the heaviest of hearts.

Why I am a Mormon

Why not? It is like having to prepare for a test at school and the teacher giving you a special tutor that knows all the answers and helps you along every step of the way…and when the class changes or there is a pop quiz...no worries, you are prepared. I have seen this scenario play out many times in my life: from leaving home for the first time, trying to wade through the dating years, finding my first job, getting married, having a child…and more trials and growing opportunities to come. I’m a Mormon because this truly is an anchor and/or Constance in my life–It keeps me grounded, it keeps me focused, it helps me grow, it helps me raise boys, it helps me keep my marriage strong, it brings meaning to my life, and it makes me happy.

How I live my faith

As a Mormon, I have had the opportunity to serve my neighbors and community, teach the Gospel to the incredible people of Colombia, teach nutrition and food safety to Mothers and Children in Bolivia, serve the youth of our church and neighborhoods as a gospel instructor, Cub Scout and Scout leader.
