August Craig, Author: August Craig is an aspiring food and prop stylist, and a huge nerd at heart. He has always loved cooking and eating food as a way to connect with people. Ever since watching Star Wars on VHS he’s had a passion for sci-fi and fantasy worlds, and the characters in them. His fondness for cooking was sparked by spending time in Spain with his Grandfather and hearing stories about the restaurant he owned. August is thrilled to combine two of his biggest passions together to share with, and hopefully inspire, people to find their own.
