About Me

When I'm not tutoring or studying, I tend to be in the kitchen cooking! I enjoy baking elaborate cakes and cooking up American, Tex-Mex and B-B-Q recipes. I'm also a bit of a coffee connoisseur--I can tell the difference between grinds, roasts, washes, brews and blends. Then, if I have any time left after that, I enjoy playing the odd board game with my friends.
