Drew Tweedy

Drew is a writer, photographer, and full-time-jobber, where he does things he enjoys slightly less than writing and photographing. He also cooks stuff, collages stuff, and does stuff with his dog, Georgia, who, yes, is a very good girl.

While in college, Drew traveled through South America and Europe for the better part of a year, somehow managed to not drop out, then graduated and promptly spent the next two years in Vietnam and Kazakhstan. He is now in San Francisco, pretending to be responsible.

Three questions Drew asks comrades upon their return from adventure, as follows:

  1. Which was the most enjoyable bite?
  2. Where was the strangest encounter?
  3. When will you go back?
