Vancouver-born photographer, writer and designer Sol Kauffman has had his hands dirty in food service for years, washing dishes and slinging pizzas. In 2008 he moved to Victoria to pursue a BFA in Creative Writing at UVic with a Minor in Journalism & Professional Writing. Since graduating he’s worked as a social media and communications consultant for several restaurants and other local businesses, helping companies develop their own unique voice. His writing has been featured in a variety of publications including Macleans Magazine and UVic’s The Martlet, where he worked for a number of years as a senior editor. Behind the camera he’s shot performances by Elton John, Sarah McLachlan, Matthew Good, De La Soul and Cirque Du Soleil. A decidedly amateur yet ambitious home cook, he delights in trading recipes and techniques with friends. He has yet to burn down his apartment, though not for lack of trying.
