My life as being a kid had embedded some deep core wounds that I had spent the most of my life at that point diving deeply into on the side of my hospitality career. And a chef’s job is not the most cohesive environment for healing.
I simply wanted to be free from the suffering. Hospitality was actually a vehicle for me to generate money, find out about the world & travel. On the side I might travel from the North of Australia in winter season, to the southern parts for the summers concentrating on farms between. It had been a continuous summer of finding people to learn different healing modalities & bodywork from, all the while employed in idyllic locations like the wilderness of Tasmania in eco lodges, the deserts of Australia.
I set my 1975 4WD Land Rover Series 3 with solar panels, 3 batteries, and kitchen in my trailer, and that i would go and do vision quests within the desert for 40 – 60 days asking them questions in deep contemplative states to locate answers about life no-one was capable of help me with. I traveled ALL of that mighty land called Australia over 20 years working in among the best restaurants in Australia and the world.
I even worked in a fine dining restaurant inside the desert which was booked 2 weeks beforehand & was the Sommelier selling wines up to Au$4400 per bottle! After all, what a ride. Some of the those who own these places inspired me incredibly and i also cannot thank them enough. One chef, Stefano de Pieri wasn’t a qualified chef and had his very own T.V channel and one of the better restaurant in the world. Mind blown I figured damn, you just need passion in everyday life and motivation.

The greater I learnt about creation of our foods, the better I realized how messed up things were. I took work on a chicken-processing farm for six or seven weeks to truly see exactly what is going on. What did I learn? We have been really disconnected from what is in fact happening. So when we see cuts of meat all cleaned and bleached on the supermarkets or sent to our establishments, what we should are missing and not connecting to is actually all the suffering that is included with it. And I Also don’t just mean the animals, without a doubt that’s obvious. But the people who work in these places have severe mental illness. They are people who tend not to match society, cannot hold a conversation with “normal” folk. Cannot arrive to work all dressed sharp and keep it together. Nope, these folks require our help.
