What do you take your photos with? 

I take most of my photos with a Canon Rebel T5i. Some of my older photos were taken on my iPhone 6s, or iPhone 7 Plus.

What do you use to edit your photos?

I try to take most of my photos in natural light, which allows very minimal editing. When I do edit, I use Adobe Lightroom or VSCO.

How do you choose where to eat out?

This is the hard part. I do a lot of research and I am an avid “Yelper”. Typically, I go by word of mouth. My friends are always suggesting I try their favorite places and my Instagram followers are great at making suggestions.

What is your favorite restaurant?

Without question one of the most difficult questions I’m asked! For the best answer to this question check out my article “Best Food in Spokane” for my tried and true list of foodie spots in Spokane by category.

Do you ever post negative reviews?

No. I choose to not post negative reviews on Spokaneeats for two main reason: 1) I refuse to take responsibility for negatively impacting a restaurant’s livelihood or success, regardless of the quality of dining experience they have to offer and 2) there are too many amazing restaurants to be excited about. I have specifically chosen to focus my energy on highlighting great experiences rather than wasting time on the negative ones.

Or about places that were just so-so?

I have hundreds of photos from mediocre restaurants that I’ll simply never share. My mission at Spokaneeats is to highlight only GREAT restaurant experiences- places I’d feel comfortable recommending to a close friend or family member. I will never post on a place I did not like, regardless of how great the photo is or how nice the server was.

So Spokaneeats is not your full time job?

No. I recently graduated college with a degree in Communications, emphasizing in Advertising, from Brigham Young University. I currently work full time at a local Wealth Management Firm coordinating their marketing, social media, events, etc.

How do you eat all that food and stay healthy?

I know it appears that I am constantly eating out, but I am not. I am actually a really healthy eater and I workout like it’s going out of style. I only eat out a couple times a week, but when I do, I make it count. I love eating out and I love exercising. As with most things in life, it’s all about finding balance. 

I have a specific restaurant question- where do I ask?

Shoot me an email! I will respond as soon as I can – [email protected], or DM me on Instagram @Spokaneeats.

I am a restaurant owner or brand manager. How can I get in touch with you for a collaboration?
