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

So who’s behind the camera?

I’m a 25-something desk jockey by day, food blogger at night. Kidding. I live and breathe food 24/7.

I don’t have many rules, but there are rules:

  • Respect the chef, always
  • The camera eats first
  • Life is too short to eat sh*t food
  • Always write with integrity (see the Usual Disclaimer)

I decided to combine my passion for photography and food in October 2012, and I’ve never looked back since. I hope you enjoy my photography as much as I enjoy eating 😉
