  • Elias has ghostwritten two books on cooking and nutrition.
  • His culinary knowledge can be traced to his first-ever job as an employee of Sur La Table.
  • An avid home cook, he specializes in all things dough related.


Elias's lifelong obsession with food stretches all the way back to the day he spoke his first word, "bread." Once he achieved full literacy, he discovered his second passion in writing. Combining the two was a natural move, and he joined the Static Media network in 2022. He previously worked as a freelance ghostwriter and editor. Elias's writing focuses primarily on history and science, using extensive research to uncover the secrets behind the foods you love, the foods you hate, and the foods you haven't tried yet.


Elias has a BFA in writing for screen and television from the University of Southern California, and is earning a certificate in journalism from the University of California, Los Angeles.
