Hey, I’m Kaitlin. I’m new here, so I thought I’d take a quick second to introduce myself to you before I started writing. Maybe you’ve seen me on Anders’ Instagram before, or maybe you read Anders’ blog post about us joining forces. Either way, since Anders and I are sharing this website now, I wanted to let you know a little bit more about me!
I’m a California girl, born and raised in Los Angeles. I always loved food, but I didn’t start my food blog (@carnivorr) until I moved to New York for college. I studied Psychology at Barnard College of Columbia University, but after graduating decided to pursue a career in the food industry.

Thanks for welcoming me here! I’m looking forward to sharing the best restaurants Anders and I find on our travels. ☺
