FROM GRAPHIC DESIGNER TO FOOD BLOGGER
EDUCATION & WORK EXPERIENCE
I am Erika Martinez and I grew up in the city of Chicago where I became a NCAA scholarship swimmer for my undergraduate degree as a graphic designer. I went to school at University at Illinois at Chicago as an art and design student.
Not only was I a student but an athlete as well. I was a swimmer for 17 years and had the opportunity to swim for UIC. My work reflects how much I enjoy traveling around the city of Chicago. Meeting new people and trying new things is something I grew up ever since I was a caddy for 8 years.

My main focus is and always has been work. I do my best not to let any distractions get in the way from accomplishing my projects. Even though I never worked for an actual company, part of me feels like I have because of how much I have done with clients and people who helped me along the way. I feel like I myself am the company.
Working with my clients and helping them move forward with their business is something I enjoy doing because it always gives me the freedom to come up with new ideas. But it's not always about working because I like the fact that while I am working, I am learning at the same time. With all the experience that I have gained in the past, it has pushed me to create something of myself. To create new things and projects for many people to see and enjoy."
FOOD BLOGGING & REVIEWS
Till this day,I am always keeping myself busy by helping others and experiencing new things by working with my clients and helping them with their business as well keep pushing my social media out there.
Going to different restaurants and trying their food has been one of my biggest passions. Especially since I enjoy eating and going out. Most of the places that I visit are in the area of Chicago. I intend to always order a little bit of everything from the menu including the alcoholic beverages. I go to these restaurants/bars to eat and review them for you guys as well for those who are always looking for places to eat or drink.
