On a Lighter Note

What was your first job?
I first worked as an all-purpose employee for my parent's small business printing and signs firm. My duties included cleaning the shop, collapsing paper boxes, collating documents and running errands. As I got older, I operated machinery, made deliveries and handled customer service matters.

Have you ever met anyone famous?
Yes, Arnold Schwarzenegger came into a gym while I was working out. Some people were taking selfies with him between his sets, but I just shook his hand when we crossed paths. During our shake, I noticed he tightened his grip. The plus for me – Arnold thinks I have a firm grip!

Is there a favorite dish you make that people rave over?
I make a chicken cacciatore dish that has received rave reviews, albeit from friendly critics. My recipe differs from the traditional one because I like spicing it up with jalapeño peppers and lots of red crushed peppers.
