About Hedonia

Sean Timberlake is a professional writer, amateur foodie, avid
traveler and all-around bon vivant. DPaul Brown is a photographer and partner in culinary crime. We were married for realz in 2008, and live in San Francisco.

Reese is our delightful Manchester Terrier mix, who we got as a rescue from the SFSPCA back in 2007. Of the three of us, she is by far the most food-motivated.

You can contact us at hedonia-at-seantimberlake-dot-com, or send in submissions to the popular Eatsdropper feature at

The caricature of Sean and DPaul in the masthead graphic was drawn by our very talented friend Franca in Rome. She and her equally talented twin sister Chiara run the Zolilla B&B.
