051 - Nic Sawa - It's a good thing food tastes so good, because we have to do it so often! Nic cultivated a love of cooking at an early age cooking with his grandmother and mother. This passion was fueled even farther when Nic got his first job at the age of fourteen. Nic started out his culinary career working for a Mom and Pops burger stand in his home town. Dairy Mart has been a community fixture in the small farm town of Huntley since the 1960s and still is to this day.&nbsp;
After a few years Nic’s desire to learn more drove him to another small family owned restaurant. Nic worked in a small Italian restaurant and pizzeria for a year before joining the military. Having access to all the different cooking equipment at the pizzeria to play with instilled a curiosity in Nic for the Art of Cooking. How one ingredient can be transformed so many ways simply by cooking with different tools and techniques.
After his military service Nic continued to study cooking and Baking on his own while attending College, working construction and working in several restaurants. After College, Nic attended a masters program at the Italian Culinary Institute in Southern Italy. This gave Nic the opportunity to fully jump into his passion of learning about the Art of Cooking from several different Masters in their fields. From Bread baking to pastry making, from cheese making to salami making, even conserving and preserving all sorts of fruits and vegetables.&nbsp;
As Nic traveled around Italy and Ireland studying how to cook he has come to understand that what we cook and why we cook is just as important as how to cook, but often over look. Here in the US we often turn to convince foods that are often not very good for us instead of taking our time to make something nice for ourselves. Through his travels and unique working experiences Nic has made it his Mission to inspire people to take some time out of their day and appreciate their meals. Food should not be an afterthought as we run around with our busy schedules. Good, nutritional, simple food is what Nic wishes to share with you and inspire you to cook.&nbsp;

048 - Jordan Graffis - Summerville's Newest Author In Cicada Summers, author Jordan Smith Graffis brings readers an emotional, heart-wrenching coming-of-age narrative that ultimately stands as an ode to motherhood.&nbsp;
Adults can learn a lot from children—actually, they have a lot to relearn. The narrator, a mother in her sixties, is writing a compilation of her greatest achievements—and failures—for her son, Billy Rubin, who is himself about to become a parent. She wants Billy to be prepared for the changes this gift will bring, and she wants him to know how much he taught her, and in turn, how much his child will teach him.&nbsp;
At the beginning of each chapter, Billy’s childhood adventures and antics are presented to the reader as illustrations of what’s truly important in life; she wants Billy to feel like he’s reading a children’s book about his youth. These lessons parents experience are actually repeats of ones thought to be previously mastered during childhood, like the importance of sharing, how to love unconditionally, and that the future is full of possibility. There is value in learning—re-learning—these important lessons, whether the knowledge contained therein is to be passed down to loved ones or not.

047 - Jack Griffith - Response is Everything Jack was born and raised in Beaufort, SC as technically the middle child, the younger of a set of twins and an older brother to Mac, his brother. Upon graduation from the University of South Carolina, Jack moved back to Beaufor to pursue a career in the insurance industry with Kinghorn Insurance Agency of Beaufort, the oldest business in Beaufort, SC. He worked there for 2 years gaining invaluable experience from his agency owners and surrounding support staff before being asked to move to Summerville, SC and help start a new branch of Kinghorn Insurance, operating under the name TW Insurance Agency. In May of 2018 Jack moved to Summerville and officially opened the doors for business on May 1st of 2018.
Jack gained interest in the local, independent agency side of the insurance industry by growing up watching his father own and operate his own law firm. Watching him make his small business a a professionally run and well respected firm, encouraged Jack to look for an industry where he could make a difference in the community while working for a family first business. He found that in the Kinghorn/TW Insurance family. By gaining the trust of his clients and putting there needs first, Jack hopes to develop an agency where he can gain the trust of local families and business owners to protect their assests correctly from all potential exposures. He is hopes to one day grow the TW brand to the same level of respect that Kinghorn has in Beaufort.
Jack has just recently purchased a home in the Summerville area and looks forward to becoming a part of the local community. When not working or out and about Jack enjoys golfing, spending time with his girlfriend Katie, enjoying time outside in the Lowcountry weather (warm or cold), and catching up with friends and family.
