We had the good fortune of connecting with Keith Graham and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Keith, where are your from? We’d love to hear about how your background has played a role in who you are today?
I’m from a place called Jasper it’s a small town in Southeast Texas. I think the biggest thing I took from growing up there is how to handle adversity, which I think a lot of people lack that. It’s certain things that’s going on in the world today that I was exposed to at an early age so I think I see the world in a difference lens than a lot of people but through faith and hard work you can overcome any obstacles and that’s a method that’s continued to bring me success.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
As a competitor I naturally want to be number one. So one I started food blogging I wanted to be the best by visiting the best places and posting the images that capture the place I’m visiting in the best way. I think that’s what makes me successful is the drive to be number one. I know I can’t be the best at everything but with that mindset it reflects the quality of my work.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Denver is full of so many great places! I just recently visited meow wolf so that would definitely be top of the list. I love all the art in Rino so many great picture opportunities in that neighborhood. Im a fan of a good rooftop and the red barber has the best rooftop in Denver. With the addition to all the new food halls lately like milepost zero and grange hall finding the perfect bite would be easy.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
This is dedicated to everyone who has supported me over the years.
