Jackie Dodd is an award-winning beer and food writer and photographer based in Seattle, Washington. She has lived a somewhat uncommon life, she learned to make fried chicken in Compton, almost died in Morocco, taught a gang member to drive a stick, and has an above-average ability to fold fitted sheets. But how does a farm girl with a Masters in Psychology and failed stints in everything from door-to-door vacuum sales to runway modeling become a published beer & food writer and photographer? Well, clearly she was running out of options.
Beer, writing, and photography were obsessions that she’d eventually get paid for; stories finding her, and her finding a home for them. From her website TheBeeroness.com, to DRAFT Magazine, Parade Magazine, 1889 Magazine, and eventually her own cookbooks. She also loves writing about humans, particularly those with irregular lives and uncommon journeys. It should be no surprise that these are the people she relates best to, she is, after all, an irregular human with an uncommon journey.More
