| Alex Gardner has been a resident of the Greater Los Angeles Metroplex for some 30 odd years. In his search for wages, he has been a short order cook, a house painter, a door-to-door salesman, a professional photographer, and even managed to have his own restaurant inside of a bar in Santa Ana. He is said to have alchemical tendencies in the kitchen, which means that he likes to play with his food. The focaccia he bakes is highly prized among friends. His writing is highly personal, and usually describes vignettes from his life. Will Alexander has described the work as Creative Non-fiction, and Alex is O.K. with that.
