Life provides an abundance of side-projects, interests, work, and love. Bread baking can be a multi-day process, providing opportunities for moments of other hobbies to shine.

I am a creative, curious human, baker, mama of under the sink worms, participant of natural cycles, and almost always have something on or around the counter fermenting. I enjoy growing herbs to make herbal tea blends and salves. I collect shells, rocks, feathers, and seeds. Things that help me unravel the riddles of the world: alternative economies, ceramics, Apus, hip-hop, zine-making, meditation, sourdough baking, collaborations, conversations on swings or blankets, lemonade.

Some people share seeds. Some people share culture. Some people share sourdough starters. Everyone shares pies.
