I grew up nestled between the ocean and the Redwoods in Humboldt County, CA where both the beach and the farm served as equal parts playground. After high school I moved to San Luis Obispo, CA to pursue my dreams of becoming a journalist at Cal Poly. I soon realized writing for deadlines didn’t exactly suit my style. The writing fell to the wayside and was replaced with dreams of becoming a PR executive in New York City. A month after graduation I bought a one-way ticket to the Big Apple with nothing more than roughly $1,000 in change (pennies in NYC), two suitcases, no job and huge aspirations. A dear friend offered up her couch, I was offered a position at a financial firm, and the rest is history!

During these formidable years many experiments have been pursued with a few especially sticking – cooking, design, style and fitness. This site serves to encapsulate these ideals in the realest of ways to encourage other like minded individuals to be their most inspired and confident selves.

Alright, time for a snack.
