Born in Houston, Texas. Alumna of The University of Texas at Austin and The French Pastry School. Baking at El Pan de la Chola in Lima, Peru. Co-creator of Oxheart Restaurant and Public Services Bar. Former director of small details at OKRA Charity Saloon. Author/Co-Artist of The Art of Baking:Oxheart and The Lima Year. Things that help me unravel the riddles of the world: design, ceramics, wandering, mountains, hip-hop, writing, meditation, Frieze, food, sourdough baking and my musings on bread.blog, conversations on porch swings or picnic blankets, love, and lemonade. I daydream.
The Studio in NYC introduced the Katonah practice to me and I enjoy referencing this digital sequence. When I want to see the world in both ancient or new, I pick a film from this Films for Action list. More on Enheduanna, an ancient Sumerian poet. When I need to bring flowers and soil inside, I watch Azuma Makoto’s botanical animation “Story of Flowers.” Language effects emotion, sound effects the body, and vibrational technology built the pyramids: here. Possible morning movement routine.
I will allow for something learned every day. I give myself the freedom to love. I strive to be honest (satya) and compassionate (karuna). I support my friends and community so together we can find our fullest expression of joy (mudita). I pour energy into openings that give me strength, creativity, and freedom. I insist on experiencing more everyday awe. I participate in this ironman. No matter where the beginning and end merge, I will breathe in inspiration from all times, breathe out with gratitude, sun salutate a way through space, and love endlessly. I expand and contract, exploring a middle way. I will leave a legacy. (Personal Creed, updated 7 May, 2020)
I habitually drink hot tea not hot.
