Sylvio MartinsLA Writer
Sylvio is a writer, blogger, and actor based in Los Angeles, California. After earning a degree from UCLA, he decided to pursue his creative interests full-time and spend all his money on food. These days you can find him at his dining table with a French press and writing on everything from politics to vegan cheese. Rumor has it that he also throws quite the pizza party (red wine included).
