  1. I’m a career chef with minor succes in tv and print, I also have Aspergers. Resulting in Chronic Anxiety and Major Depression as well as the resulting issues with co-workers due to the difficulties inherent with Aspergers.

    Thank you a million for this project. I’d like to be of service if you ever need anything.
