About A Gringo in Mexico
San Diego based culture, food and travel journalist W. Scott Koenig has explored Mexico and Baja California for over two decades. He founded AGringoInMexico.com in 2012 to report on south of the border destinations, food, culture and adventure. The website has since become an invaluable source of information on the burgeoning food and culture scene in Baja California, as well as the wider scene throughout Mexico.
Koenig writes a regular column for SanDiegoRed.com and has also been published at Baja.com, the Baja Times, Destino Magazine, The Oaxaca Times and The Yucatan Times. Koenig is the FoodieHub Food Expert for Tijuana, the Valle de Guadalupe and Rosarito Beach for FoodieHub.TV, a meal and restaurant recommendation website and mobile app curated by over 250 global food experts.
Through EscapetoBaja.com, Koenig and his wife Ursula create and conduct customized tours for friends and clients in the Valle de Guadalupe, Ensenada, Tijuana and Mexicali. Clients have included chefs, culinarians, food writers and even a Pulitzer prize winning journalist.
On his travels to Mexico as well as other global destinations, Koenig enthuses, “As a citizen of the world, I’ve always felt international travel was important for personal pleasure, growth and perspective as well as the sharing of knowledge, culture or just a drink with the locals and expats of any given destination.” Mexico has made a lasting impression on his family as well as well — they accompany him on many of his south of the border adventures.
Koenig is also the owner of Koenig Creative LLC in San Diego, California and has over 30 years of experience in marketing, creative direction and graphic design.
