who is the fat pig

Hello. I’m the writer of the oinking posts, the recipe scribbler, shutter-button pusher. Here’s a little more about me:

In my best daydreams I cultivate a leafy lettuce that tastes like Doritos.

I’ve been a fan of jazz hands since the day I went to see A Chorus Line when I was thirteen years old. My heart sped up when the whole cast high-kicked in unison.

A few years later the song that goes, “Oh god I need this job…” really resonated with my everyday life. I’m a Production Designer for films, an Art Director for commercials. I work on print ads and editorials as a Set Designer and Prop Stylist. We like to divvy up our titles and be weird about language in the entertainment industry.

I’m wicked with a glue gun.

I think objects and how they’re arranged tell a story. I’m kinda passionate about that topic. I’ll keep on talking about it accompanied by much hand-waving if you wanna chill at an outdoor cafe and get fired up about the language of objects with me.

I like the way food can sidestep into a story. A certain scent, a flavor can whoosh you all the way back to a place, a person. Food can become linked with the emotion of a moment. I think that’s interesting.

Maybe I just like a snack with my stories.

Fat pig in the market is about the impulse to oink which to me means:

What’s that? I’ll try it.

This is definitely a good idea. I’m in, boss.

    Your creativness has motivated this old guy to try and take up some cooking on my own. I am going to try “Brown Sugar Blonde” I’ll let you know how they turn out. Just love reading your blog.

    Ok, Next time I want some photos of you already! That pig is cute and all, but I’m sure there is absolutely no resemblance. And if you do manage to make lettuce that tastes like Doritos, I will find a way to pay you 1 Million American dollars for the recipe.

      Hmmm….are you saying ditch the oinker in my heading? I’ve been thinking I need to update or vary it, snazz up the header somehow. That’s me doing jazz hands. I’m pretty much a behind the scenes type so you won’t see too many photos of me. I’m Oz behind the curtain but good Oz not weirdo shakey Oz.

  3. Pretty cool to find out about your other talents! You sound like you keep very busy. Great pictures of some pretty tasty food- I will take one of each!

  4. What a cute picture of you with the “jazz hands.” I always remember a commercial from MTV, back when they played music, where they did jazz hands and I thought it was the funniest thing ever. I still say it and do it. Strange how some things stick, no? Fried eggs on pizza rule.

    “much hand-waving” – spot on! How about a coffee in NY in late May? :)
