Meet George Motz: George Motz's Bio

George Motz is an author, burger expert and host of Burger Land. George is a well traveled, Emmy award-winning freelance filmmaker and photographer based in New York City. Over the past 23 years he has worked on numerous television commercials, feature films, music videos, promos and documentaries. In Burger Land, George takes a road trip across America, offering viewers his unique perspective on the nation’s top burgers in various regions of the country.

In 2011, Motz starred in Travel Channel's Made In America, where he traveled the country to explore the workshops, labs and factories that crank out the ingenious products America has to offer.

Hamburger America, his second documentary film that he shot, produced, edited and directed, was completed in the spring of 2005. The film was nominated in 2006 for a James Beard Foundation Award and won the audience award at the 2009 Modesto Film Festival. The film's success led to a state-by-state guide to hamburgers, also titled Hamburger America, written by George with over 250 of his original hamburger photos.

George is also the director of the Food Film Festival which is held annually in NYC, Chicago and Charleston. It is a multi-sensory film festival where the audience is treated to the food they see on the screen.

George lives in Brooklyn, NY, with his wife Casey and 2 children, Ruby and Mac.
