I am Dan and this is my page. Pictured above are two important people in my life: My mother and Chef Soileau. As much as I don’t like to admit it, my mother and I clash all the time, but she’s right at least 90 percent of it. She’s the reason I’m 60 percent of who I am today. The other 40, I had to get through experience.
Soileau on the other hand, is, as Shawn Stockman would say it, “my dude, my guy”. I had him for Skills and the way he passionately taught it pretty much put my whole career on skyrocket: I want to teach now, and he put a serious dent in my life by influencing me to participate in a Bachelor’s program. I just ended up here.
I moved from Manila in 2003 to California.
I go to the Culinary Institute of America. And yes, I’ll say it over and over again: I’m one lucky guy. Thank you, C-CAP.
I play tennis and a ton of videogames. I also do photography work, only because I wanted to do the 365 Project for myself.
I also love the people I surround myself and am surrounded with. That’s pretty much the 40 percent mentioned, away from my mother.
If you have any questions, just ask. I really have nothing to hide.
