My name is Wheeler Cowperthwaite. I’m a recent graduate from the University of Nevada, Reno, with a bachelor’s in print journalism and political science.

I’m the cops and courts reporter (official title: staff writer) for the Rio Grande SUN in Española, New Mexico.

Journalist. Photographer. Mensch.

I write food columns and make videos about cooking with Derek Nance. In addition to the food columns, I write a blog about food, and other things, called “Put some cilantro on it!”

All of the pictures on the website and on the blog, assuming I took them, are both available to download from my Flickr profile (usually in a higher-quality format) and free to use: I use a attribution Creative Commons license. Use them, so long as you attribute me/link to the work. I appreciate, too, if one who uses them sends me an email/link. Just appreciate, though.

Our YouTube channel is www.youtube.com/CookingWithWheeler.

I also homebrew; we’re Fat Grey Tom’s Cider.

I also review books and sometimes write some criticism. It’s available on Goodreads.com or at my review website.

Feel free to contact me at [email protected] or follow me on twitter, @WheelerReporter or @wcowperthwaite.

I speak German (passable fluency) and have an affinity for both the signature East German mustard, Bautz’ner Senf (mittlescharf,) and German wine.
