Eater is delighted to announce that Mattie John Bamman has joined the Portland team as editor. Leading up to today, Mattie's byline has regularly appeared in Northwest Travel Magazine and Thrillist among many others. He has updated and authored nine Northstar Travel Media guides and contributed chapters to 11 books on culinary travel in Australia. Possibly also of interest: he got his start writing for death metal publications.
Please give a big welcome to Mattie down below. Or, if you favor more intimate means of connection, reach him at email@example.com and/or follow him on Twitter at @ravenoustravelr. He is entrenched in the restaurant and bar scenes of Portland, but as always, your tips and gossip are appreciated.
We're very excited he's here and look forward to his coverage.
After more than a decade as a travel writer and restaurant critic, I moved to Maine with my wife to start a homestead. I created Ravenous Farmer to inspire others to live more sustainable and fulfilling lives.
