In 2019, our Daughter Riley qualified to compete in the National Archery Championships in Louisville, KY. We decided to organize a bake-sale fundraiser to pull together enough money to pay for the trip. The entire family kicked into high gear: Riley and I baked, my wife Karen and son Alex created signs and posters. All of us sat for hours gift-wrapping everything. We sold loaves of bread and cookies to neighbors, friends, and colleagues at the AISD headquarters in downtown Austin. 

The response was overwhelming! We raised enough money to cover the entire trip in only a few weeks! Riley had a personal best score (262/300 points!) And everyone loved my recipes.

I’m often in the kitchen trying to find the perfect combination of sugar, flour, and butter. It’s a magical process – transforming mundane ingredients into something that brings people together and makes them happy. I love every moment I’m in my kitchen - especially when my wife and two children bake with me.
