My life as being a kid had embedded some deep core wounds that I had spent the most of my entire life at that point diving deeply into on the side of my hospitality career. And a chef’s job is not by far the most cohesive environment for healing.
I simply wanted to be free from the suffering. Hospitality had been a vehicle to me to make money, read about the world & travel. On the side I might travel through the North of Australia during winter season, to the southern parts for the summers working on farms between. It was a never-ending summer of finding individuals to learn different healing modalities & bodywork from, all the while doing work in idyllic locations just like the wilderness of Tasmania in eco lodges, the deserts of Australia.
I set my 1975 4WD Land Rover Series 3 up with solar panels, 3 batteries, and kitchen inside my trailer, and i also would go and do vision quests within the desert for 40 – 60 days asking questions in deep contemplative states to locate answers about life no-one had been in a position to assist me to with. I traveled All that mighty land called Australia over 20 years doing work in the best restaurants in Australia as well as the world.
I even worked in a fine dining restaurant inside the desert that was booked 2 weeks ahead of time & was the Sommelier selling wines as much as Au$4400 per bottle! I am talking about, just what a ride. A number of the people who own these places inspired me incredibly and I cannot thank them enough. One chef, Stefano de Pieri wasn’t also a qualified chef along with his very own T.V channel and one of the best restaurant on earth. Mind blown I figured damn, all you need is passion in life and motivation.

The better I learnt about manufacture of our foods, the better I realized how messed up things were. I took work with a chicken-processing farm for 6 weeks to really see exactly what is going on. What did I learn? We have been really disconnected to what is actually happening. And once we percieve cuts of meat all cleaned and bleached on the supermarkets or shipped to our establishments, whatever we are missing and not connecting to is actually all the suffering that comes with it. And I don’t just mean the animals, for certain that’s obvious. But the people who function in these places have severe mental illness. They may be those who usually do not match society, cannot hold a conversation with “normal” folk. Cannot arrive to operate all dressed sharp and keep it together. Nope, these individuals require our help.
