New Talent On the Gemini and Artemis

John the Legend and I are retiring this year.  John will return to his sweetheart Christy and their beautiful remote property on Kodiak, where they’ll grow many of the fresh, organic vegetables we serve.  I won’t completely ‘retire,’ but will step back and spend more time with my family and help manage the lodge and […]
