What did you study in college?
I went to Texas State University in San Marcos, Texas where I received a bachelor of science in consumer sciences with a double minor in advertising and business administration.
Why and when did you start food blogging?
I started food blogging back in May of 2017. I have always wanted to start my own blog but was really nervous of putting myself out there (can anyone else relate?) and didn’t know what I wanted to talk about. That same year, I went to a Create and Cultivate panel at SXSW and was really inspired by all the entrepreneurs and bloggers around me. I left really pumped and launched my blog two months later.
I wanted my niche to be food because of my passion for food photography, food styling and my love for eating and sharing my experiences. I was really motivated by the epic food scene here in town and I wanted to start helping people find where to eat through my recommendations. The rest is history.
Do you have any advice for someone wanting to start a blog?
YES! My best piece of advice for anyone wanting to start a blog is: buy a domain! Buying your own domain will motivate you to start blogging and making the purchase really forces you to jump into it – try it!
What kind of camera do you use?
I currently use a Canon TSi6 and have a few lenses I use to interchange, depending on what I’m shooting.
Where did you grow up?
I am Mexican-American and grew up in San Antonio, Texas. My parents were born in Texas and my grandparents were born in Mexico.
