A resident of Colorado's western slope outside Telluride, Bruce French works professionally as a personal chef to popular rock bands such as Pearl Jam on world tours. When not on the road, the avid outdoorsman enjoys climbing, mountaineering and Kayaking near his yurt home in the San Juan Mountains.
While sailing around the world in the mid '90s, he made a stopover in Sri Lanka.
