Alex Castanon
Golden, Colorado

Like her fellow Silver Spork News contributors, Alex is a lover of food. She does not discriminate. Unless it is mushy, or mixed together, or weird looking. Alright, truth is Alex is a very picky eater. She has been nurturing this talent from a very young age. Only recently has she decided to venture out and try new foods. You are witnessing first hand her foray into the wide world of food.

Her 9-5 life is spent amongst the straight-laced suits in a downtown high rise. On weekends however, she pursues a completely different kind of fun and indulges her love of history. Letting her hair down, she dons a barmaid costume to lead ghost tour pub crawls through the old red light district of Denver.
