About Erik Trinidad
Erik Trinidad is a Brooklyn-based freelance travel and food journalist, photographer, and video producer, whose credits include National Geographic Travel, Condé Nast Traveler, Saveur, and Discovery.com. He is also the creator of the critically-acclaimed and award-winning food humor blog, "Fancy Fast Food" (and author of the book based on it), and has appeared on television on Rachael Ray, Nightline, Foodography, and National Geographic Channel's Brain Games.
In 2012, Erik began producing one-off travel videos with an off-beat scientific or cultural twist for Discovery.com, and continued to do so when moving onto National Geographic. Those one-off videos, which complemented his individual articles, have been collected and rebranded here as "Plausibly Ridiculous." Episodes will continue to be produced as Erik travels the globe in search of exotic food, high adventure, and scientific curiosities.
