KJZZ partners with the Arizona Republic to bring you the Arizona Storytellers series. We record the live events and share them with you on the radio. In Phoenix, the storytellers sometimes share stories about our community or the life events that have shaped them in general. Megan Finnerty is the creator of the series. 


Chef Aaron May is from Chicago. He went to culinary school in Paris and later became a cook in New York City and loved his life.

Then he fell in love with a girl from Phoenix and moved to the Valley. The relationship was going well — Phoenix, not so much.

Chef Aaron May runs several restaurants in Phoenix and throughout the West. He travels all the time for his job, but he still calls Phoenix home.

You can hear more stories like this at our next night of live storytelling on Oct. 20, 2014, at the Farm at South Mountain.
