February 9

Meet my 18 year old son, Sand. (I originally picked a nickname based on his passion for cooking, but his friends call him Sand & that’s what he preferred.)

He is a high school junior and loves cooking. Sand decided when he was eight that he wanted to be a chef and has never deviated since. (We have the Food Network to thank!)

He also writes “creepypasta” and occasionally draws characters from the stories as well. Sand also plays video games with his most recent obsession being “Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance.”

(Getting him to smile proved impossible. Anyone with teenagers knows what that’s like!)

Say “Hello!” to Sand!
