Profile Information

Mesa, AZ
Where have you lived and worked?
If it's in the US, I lived or worked there.
(Ooops, no Alaska or Hawaii yet.)
About Me:
I'n an experienced, professional waiter, but my heart is too filled by nature's beauty to stay stuck permanently in a city job.
I've discovered the joys (OK, and some of the trials) of working the seasonal places, and found I really, really loved it. I like the pace of being busy most of the time, the varied types of guests, and the new friends I meet.
Last Seasonal Job:
El Tovar Dining Room, Grand Canyon South Rim
Favorite Seasonal Job:
Uh, that was the only one so far, and I worked year-round for a year and a half.
Dream Job:
Seasonal position in an upscale dining room.
