The Shen

“One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.” – Virginia Woolf

“Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer”.

So who’s behind the camera?

28-something desk jockey by day, food blogger and jet-setter wannabe by night.

I don’t have many rules, but here are the rules:

  • Respect the chef, always
  • Life is too short to eat sh*t food
  • Never stay still
  • Always be yourself (see the Usual Disclaimer)

I decided to combine my passion for photography and food in October 2012, incorporating travel in 2016 and have never looked back since. I hope you enjoy my photography as much as I enjoy eating!
