Introduction
Hi, I'm Brandon! I enjoy cooking with seasonal ingredients, making ice cream and shaking up some killer cocktails. I document all my culinary endeavors on a website called Kitchen Konfidence. When I am not cooking and taking pictures of my food, I am at the beach, carousing with friends, taking day trips up the 5, or engaging in all manner of computer geekery.
