I recently went on a trip to visit some friends in one of my favorite cities, London. Prior to my trip, I asked my editor, Maria, at Roaming Hunger, if she would be down with me writing an article on the booming street food scene in London and she immediately said yes. I had an epic time hitting up various events and shooting tons of photos. Unfortunately, only a few were selected for the article , but the rest needed to be scene.

I had the pleasure of interviewing Brett, one of the owners of the Southern Comfort Food Truck. They're a New Orleans themed truck on the scene and have taken off rather quickly. Click on the photo for my profile on them for Roaming Hunger.
My holiday article for Roaming Hunger just came out today. In it, I feature the German food truck called, Little Red Riding Truck. In observance of St. Nicolaus Day, they will be serving traditional German winter dishes at Winterfest, in Menlo Park, this Sat, 12/6. Please check out the article and if you're in the area, stop by. I will def be there.
My next assignment for Roaming Hunger was to feature a new truck on the scene. The only problem was, I couldn't find one! I kind of panicked since this was my first road block, while working for them. I went back to my editor and proposed a little spin on the topic. "What about a truck who recently opened their brick-and-mortar location?", I asked. "They may not be a new truck, but it's a new phase in their business." Permission granted! I had less than a week before my deadline but fortunately I was able to meet with James, the founder of Fist of Flour, score an interview and shoot some photos at the "Doughjo".

I think I had the most fun working on this article for Roaming Hunger. I spent about 4 hours with 3 really awesome guys, drinking craft beer on an renovated school bus, shooting photographs and having some really good conversations. A food truck next door would've made it perfect. LOL. Click on the photo to read my article on the brewtruck.
The topic for this month's article for Roaming Hunger is desserts. I had a blast working on this article since it was a little out of the norm for me. It was a beautiful day out and I brought my good friend, Kim, to check out a weekly event, in SF, that we hadn't been to before. CLICK HERE to read my next article for Roaming Hunger.
The last 3 months have been pretty fun working on articles for Roaming Hunger. I've been able to hit food truck events, on a regular basis, eat great food and shoot photos. That's pretty much half my hobbies right there! I'm also getting the opportunity to meet some truly amazing people in the industry. It's a little intimidating, at times, since shooting photos is what I'm used to doing. Now I'm given the chance to express myself through words as well.Read more
For my next article with Roaming Hunger, I was asked to profile a chef who helped pave the way in the food truck industry. Honestly, I knew exactly who I wanted to interview, but the question was, could I? My initial contact was by sending an email through their website and we all know how that goes. A week goes by and nothing. I had some friends visiting from Seattle so I took them to a food truck event and saw the Chairman Truck was serving. I decided this was my chance to make contact #2. I went up to the order window, explained who I was, gave the woman my card and mentioned I had previously sent an email and was interested in interviewing Chef Hiroo. She said she would pass the message on, etc, etc. Between us, I thought I may have gotten a little over my head with this. Why would the legendary Hiroo of the Chairman want to speak with me? Well…a few hours later my phone buzzed, I checked my email and it was Hiroo J

I'm excited to announce that my first article for Roaming Hunger was published today! They're a website featuring food trucks from all around the country. My first assignment was to hold an impromptu food and beer pairing at last months 2nd Annual Session Beer Fest, here in Oakland. Not only did I shoot photographs but I was able to put my writing skills to the test as well. Hope you enjoy it! Click here to read the post! Cheers!!
