Hello.  I’m the Thirsty Pig and I like to take pictures of food.  I don’t cook much, but I like to try to cook.  So, I take pictures of food when go out to eat.

I was born in the US and grew up mostly in Southern California.  After finishing my undergrad, I lived and worked in Taipei, Hong Kong, Shenzhen, and most recently, Shanghai.  I will journal my travels, which include restaurants, hotels, and markets.

The Thirsty Pig was offline for a couple of years due to a bad plug-in that i installed.  After reviving it, with the most of the content and pictures, I have decided to focus more on the pictures.  I will admit that there a bunch of pictures that kind of suck or just suck, but there might be a few gems.

I’ve taken pictures with my old Nokia N73 phone, iPhone 3G, 3GS, 4, 4S, 5, 5s, 6, and now with my 7 Plus.  I used to use my Canon Powershot S90, which was a great little camera.  And more recently, I have used my Nikon D90 with a Sigma 30mm f/1.4 lens. But, the best camera is the one that you have with you. I don’t lug my Nikon as much as I want to.

On the side, I work with groups on consulting on restaurant concepts and marketing.  If you would like to contact me, please reach out via thirstypig[at]gmail.com. . . Anyways, if you haven’t been here before, welcome.  If you found me again, great to see you again.
