About Spencer Spellman

My life imbibing and traveling around the world started early, flying on a plane for the first time at age five and by myself for the first time at seven. Two decades later and little has changed, though I’ve replaced my notebook, disposable camera, and bottle of coke for a laptop, DSLR, and bottle of whiskey. Having my work featured in publications like National Geographic, AFAR Magazine, Outside Magazine, Los Angeles Times, MSN, and Yahoo, I cover all things travel, food, and drinks here on Whiskey Tango Globetrot. Find out more about me and WTG here.
