I was born in Massachusetts but moved to NC when I was 10. Northern Born and Southern Raised. I went to Johnson and Wales for culinary arts and restaurant management but got into tie dye while I was a pizza chef, it was something I was interested in and an easy way to knock out all my Christmas gifts :). It's been a crazy ride! The CornDog name is super random, a friend found a picture of a guy on the internet who at the time looked a lot like me. He was sitting back in a computer chair, no shirt on, dangling a corn dog over his face. It looked so much like me, that even I had to do a double take. From then on people started calling me CornDog. I don't even like CornDogs. I think they are gross but it was a marketable name.
