About Me

Hi! I'm Jacqui -- writer, photographer and eater at Happy Jack Eats. I started this blog as a space to share the many pictures of food that I found myself taking, as well as a chance to do what I've always loved to do: write. After years of eating, cooking, writing, and taking photos for this blog, I started discovering things I never set out to learn, appreciating things I never noticed before, and connecting with people I've never met.

Now, I stop to take pictures of simple moments. I have a new love for photography, both film and digital, and the cameras that capture such moments. I am learning how to bake. I roast every vegetable I can get my hands on. And I share it all with you.

In the real world, I'm a 20-something online content editor living in the suburbs of Chicago with my husband, Murdo, and two sweet kitties, Marlo and Omar. We recently bought our first house and are learning how to make it a home.

Welcome to Happy Jack Eats. I hope you like it here.
