Elizabeth White resides on the Central Coast of California, where for several years she authored the San Luis Obispo County lifestyle blog, Elizabeth in SLO. Readers from around the globe shared her discovery of SLO County's avant-garde, as she explored the beauty and wonder of this regional Shangri-la.
Elizabeth's taste for adventure dates back to the 90s, when she taught English in rural Japan. She reveled in discovering the local cuisine and customs while surrounded by lush fields of rice, stunning tulip farms, and towering alps. She later served as the media coordinator for the Japan Exchange and Teaching Program's Alumni Association of Southern California, where she sourced writers, edited articles, and published several of her Japanese escapades in Sushi and Sake Magazine.
Her love of documentaries led her to volunteer for the San Luis Obispo International Film Festival, where for several years she wrangled wine for Festival events and also served as a board member. This experience kindled her interest in the budding Central Coast wine scene.
Elizabeth's blog stories chronicled her vino-infused exploits throughout the rolling SLO County vineyards and culinary hot spots, as well as her experimentation with recipes influenced by local flavors and products. Her interviews with local chefs and wine makers have been published in VINO Wine Lifestyle Magazine and Templeton Life.
Currently she continues to wander, photograph, and write about the beauty and wonder of the Central Coast, largely as a guest blogger. When out exploring the local terrain, Elizabeth, camera in tow, captures the regional wildlife and majestic coastal scenery. She is a published photographer and uses her photos to bring her stories to life. You can catch glimpses of her work at elizabethinslo.blogspot.com and elizabethwhitephotos.com.
