For over 10 years Burger Beast has documented his burger and comfort food excursions and food history findings via his blog and social media.

BB produces many culinary events throughout the year including the current longest-running food truck event in Florida (since August 2011), Food Trucks at Arts Park and Croquetapalooza.

He most recently wrote a book All About the Burger about the history of the hamburger.

You can follow his food and historical exploits on this blog, Burger Beast and social media like FacebookInstagram, and Twitter.
