Inspiring respect for the culinary and cultural traditions of communities around the globe, Anthony Bourdain was a true pioneer who showed us how people everywhere are so similar. His raw, irreverent, familiar style paints a picture of food, the restaurant industry, and the world itself, in an often sweet, but sometimes less-than-savory, light.

Building PCs, remodeling, and cooking since he was young, quasi-renowned trumpeter Christopher Thomas traveled the USA performing at and organizing shows from an early age. His work experiences led him to open a catering company, eventually becoming a sous chef in several fine LA restaurants. He enjoys all sorts of barely necessary gadgets, specialty computing, cutting-edge video games, and modern social policy. He has given talks on debunking pseudoscience, the Dunning-Kruger effect, culinary technique, and traveling. After two decades of product and market research, Chris has a keen sense of what people want to know and how to explain it clearly. He delights in parsing complex subjects for anyone who will listen -- because teaching is the best way to ensure that you understand things yourself.
