I grew up a mixed breed among Mexican immigrants in California, and for the first ten years of my life, I thought I was one of them.

Bryanne is a Southern Californian writer, editor, mom, wife and foodophile. She works from her home as a contributor for 3FatChicks.com, FitDay.com and as a freelance digital media consultant who helps clients develop their emerging internet brand. She’s a military spouse, and has her hand over her brow, searching for the horizon (aka, retirement) where she hopes she will finally get to know her husband of sixteen years. Her teenage sons, now permitted to drive and date, have one foot out the door, and she is hesitantly facing life as an eventual empty-nester. Bryanne finds balance through her blog, Bryanne Bites the World, where she explores local ethnic enclaves, tasting some pretty outrageous (and delicious) food, which she then translates into a blog post for her five readers to enjoy. She hopes to one day write for the Huffington Post, New York Times, Saveur and Lucky Peach Magazine, and to publish a memoir. In the meantime, she’s happy sitting in her bathrobe, sharing her stories with the world.
