Chef Drew has his roots firmly planted in the earth which in turn provides the needed ingredients for his creations. And they are entwined in his creative flow depicted as a river filled with maps and open spaces.
He leans with gratitude on the pool of wisdom and tradition that has come before him; the legion of talented chefs who have followed their passions, laying the groundwork so that he may do the same.
The tree of life springs up and around his head, offering insights and inspiration, sparking his imagination, and presenting a multitude of choices to practice his passion.
As he gazes into the future, his visions are realized – he creates what he is called to create and he travels wherever he is called to go.
Joy and love surround him on all sides via words and hearts so he never forgets that enjoying life and doing what you love are essential ingredients to success.
