About the Author


Born in Oregon and based in California, Ian Anderson has been road-tripping up and down the west coast since before he could see over the steering wheel. Over the past two decades, he's lived in Portland, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and San Diego, logging more than ten thousand miles on coastal highways, mostly looking for great food, beautiful beaches, and fun surf.
Ian is currently based in San Diego, covering "America's Finest City" as a reporter, beer writer, and restaurant critic for the San Diego Reader. He's written for websites, magazines, and books on topics ranging from music to preserving the environment, but for the most part, Ian's expertise matches his interests-chief among them exploring sights, sounds, and flavors of the west coast-and bringing these experiences to life for readers.
