Hi I’m Megan, a San Diego-based photographer, nutritionist (RDN), and enthusiastic cook. After spending a healthy portion of my childhood and early-ish adulthood living abroad, my fascination with the intersection of people, language, and FOOD was born.
I believe food may be the remedy for all that ails us. While the beauty of food itself provides ample inspiration, I'm just as intrigued by the role food plays in building and nourishing community. Feeding one another can be an act of love, a history of family and ancestors, an introduction to a previously unfamiliar culture, an art form, a paycheck, a vital component of both social and environmental justice, and ultimately an incredible vehicle for human connection.
My dual passions of photography and food first collided during the years I spent in the non-profit nutrition world. During this time, I developed and tested recipes, enjoyed serving clients from around the globe, and produced visual content that was featured in nutrition education and marketing initiatives throughout California.
These days I live in North Park with my husband Jonathan where I enjoy foraging for veggies in my family's garden, trying to nail a handstand and hold it, drinking strong coffee, and speaking mediocre Spanish with my two young rambunctious sons. I've got a chronic itch in my feet and can typically be found plotting my family's next adventure!
If you really want to make a friend,
go to someone's house and eat with him...
the people who give you their food
give you their hearts
