About the speaker
Nate is a husband and father of 5 beautiful little girls. They are his joy and magic in life. He’s also a professional singer and a self-taught chef. Nate loves to sing and loves to cook and loves to enjoy delicious drinks, often with a great cigar. But more than that he loves to inspire and encourage others to cook and to sing and to enjoy all the small moments in life. Like enjoying a good hot dog. And not just any hot dog, a skin-on wiener.
If you were to ask his family what Nate’s favorite food would be they would emphatically shout, “Hot Dogs”. And hold the ketchup. Please. No offense to those of you who love ketchup. Nate holds no ill will towards ketchup. But, when it comes to his hot dogs, ketchup has no place in the same universe. That’s just how he rolls. You see, Nate developed this love for hot dogs from his dad and from a lifetime of trips to the MN State Fair where he can enjoy delicious footlong hot dogs. And boy does he enjoys the footlongs. Last year Nate consumed 8 footlongs in a single day. He just loves ‘em that much.
His hope is that you will love the magic of Natedogs that much. Enough to enjoy 8 or more in a single day. Nate can’t wait to share with you his passion for hot dogs and he can’t wait to make a bunch of new friends.
