A Brief Q&A With Kai

Nickname: Kailander - There Can Only Be One

Chef Status: I'd say my chef status was about a 7. I like to cook, and love to cook a bunch of different pastas, but because I cook every night, I have to mix it up a bit.

Favorite Kitchen Tool: A really good knife.

Who, or What Inspires You? Bender! BENDER!

What Are You Afraid Of? Heights, but I'm getting over it the older I get.

Most People Don't Know This, But I Once... cliff dove.

Yes, I cliff dive even though I'm afraid of heights. If I look over the edge before I jump it scares me, so I just run and jump. I even second guess myself on the way down, but it's fun.

My Story: I got started at Tundra because my girlfriend actually worked here before me. I was working in construction before this, but as the economy was going down, I got laid off. I started here in catalog price checking, and eventually moved into the warehouse. In June, I've been here for 4 years.

Other than saying I've been cliff diving for the past 10 years, I also like disk golf, playing in the mountains, snowboarding and brewing my own beer.
