George Motz is a well-traveled Emmy Award–winning freelance filmmaker, author, and photographer. He has also been called the “foremost authority on hamburgers” by the New York Times and “America’s biggest burger name” by Eater LA.
In the spring of 2004, Motz completed a documentary film Hamburger America, which was nominated in 2006 for a James Beard Award, and was recognized in 2011 by the US National Archives as an integral part of American food history. The film’s success led to a state-by-state guide to hamburgers, also titled Hamburger America: A State-by-State Guide to Great Burger Joints. And in 2016, Abrams released his first cookbook, The Great American Burger Book. Motz can be seen on his show, Burger Scholar Sessions, on Complex Media’s First We Feast. He lives in Brooklyn.
