Tell us a bit about your back story leading to where you are now as a Food Blogger?
Blogging started as a creative outlet. I started gearing it more towards fashion and lifestyle back in late 2017 early 2018. As the blog started to become successful; I wanted it to have one main focus and to focus on food was the obvious choice because who doesn’t love food right? During that time I also worked a lot as a construction professional. So I considered myself a weekend warrior and I would try and squeeze in as many restaurants as I could during the weekend. I think that really resonated with most working class people. You work hard doing the week and treat yourself on the weekends.

Are you from CO? Why did you choose to call your neighborhood home?
I’m from Texas originally. I moved to Colorado in 2013. I lived in Grand Junction for a while before eventually moving to Denver. I’ve lived in the Glendale/ Cherry Creek area since moving here. I love that it’s a central location so it makes maneuvering around the city super easy and I’m also really close to the mall.
What do you love about Denver?
I love Denver summers. I fall in love with Denver all over again every summer. I also love how the communities rally around important issues.
