from Hollywood, CA! :)
Say hello to the newest members of the team: V (our producer) and Brandon (our DP, or Director of Photography – aka “Camera Dude”)!
V (short for Viorica), a friend of mine from LA, has done lots of production stuff and is currently working on a screenplay. Brandon was a contact she had, and after he and I talked, I knew this guy was awesome. When he sent me over samples of his work, in short: I was knocked over—good stuff!! :)
One of the things I’m most excited about from our meeting today is the emphasis on STORY.
We really want to take the viewer (YOU) on an experience and journey, very much in the style of Anthony Bourdain’s No Reservations.
What fires me up is the thought of bringing out the stories of why people are doing the work they are with food: why did they open up a restaurant? What has been their journey? What still excites them?
And, V and Brandon both thought that my story of nomadic living could be a great addition.
So yeah—we’re all about telling a story and entertaining through our love for HEALTHY FOOD! :)
Title of the Show!
We’re still tossing around ideas—do you like any of these? (Let us know in the comments!)

I Made Lunch!
In keeping with the theme of having a healthy show, I strive to have a healthy crew!! :)
So I whipped up a batch of that Broccoli/Mango/Avocado salad for everyone…
and they LOVED it!! :)
(thanks again to Young and Raw for the idea!)
Show and Tell!
All of Brandon’s toys: I have no idea what they do, but I’m very impressed and excited – ha!
This thing is definitely going to look super cool!!
And of course, how could I send them off without more food?!
They each got a persimmon (fresh from the tree in the front yard) to take on the road!
Oh, and it also turns out that Brandon is a big Macklemore fan—sweet! :)
(PS – check out my buddy Mack’s new album The Heist, which debuted at #1 on iTunes this week!!)
Have any questions for the crew? And what show title do you like?
I’d love to hear your response + any other thoughts you have below.
Looking forward to learning more!
