The Coastal Wind comes to you courtesy of Jeremy, a 24 year old guy feeling out the throes of adulthood in NYC. While at times it has its flares and hiccups in the world of politics and current affairs, for the most part its just a random compilation of the events and occurrences in his life.
Born and raised in Hampton Roads, VA, Jeremy grew up with the sand between his toes and the sun shining on his skin all year long. A “student of the game” in both baseball and golf, he wishes he had more time to enjoy both up in the big city. A somewhat recent graduate of Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, more fondly called Virginia Tech, his studies yielded two bachelor’s degrees. The first a B.S. in Human Resource Management and the second a B.A. in Public and Non-Profit Management. While he misses Blacksburg, the Home of the Hokies, he’s embraced a new life in New York, where as Frank says, “… if you can make it here, you can make it anywhere.” He currently works as a Corporate Service Manager for New York City’s premier volunteer organization, planning customized corporate service projects.
His friend and mentor back in Smithfield, VA would tell you he’s a bon vivant, or lover of good food and drink. As an aspiring culinary artist and sommelier on the side, a lot of what you’ll find here are his forays into food and wine. Please feel free to try some of the recipes and bottles of wine yourselves and leave some feedback! The rest are just anecdotal stories of life in the concrete jungle where dreams are made of, or something like that. There’s also an occasional hiccup to discuss a current affairs topic that has seemed to really light his fire, but he tries to keep those to a minimum– mostly because someone once told him you should never discuss politics, money, or religion in public.
And that friends is how the blog came about and in the end, if he had it his way, it would be written from the beach with the sand beneath his toes, a drink in hand, and a nice “coastal wind” coming in off the breakers.
