Designer in San Francisco. Link to "Love Will Win" poster shop to raise money for charity
Cooking pro-tip! Soak chopped or puréed onion/shallot/garlic in lemon/lime/orange juice for 20 minutes in order to create an amazing base for any sauce or salad dressing. The citrus takes the bite out of the spicy allium and the flavors marry in the best way. From there add any of the following: olive or sesame oil, a cup of fresh herbs, tahini/miso/nut butter, honey/maple, avocado, chilis, dried herbs, whatever sound good. Oh! And good sea salt.
P.S. Yes I do love my @thenutribullet and yes you should probably get one.
P.P.S. Hat tip to @ciaosamin as I learned this lemon/onion technique from her indispensable book #saltfatacidheat.
@californiasunday magazine’s issue about teenagers is sooooo good! Love the way they broke up the format in a fresh way and the wide variety of perspectives rarely heard from, such as the dozens of teens who contributed to the issue.
I got to play with colored light as a design tool quite a bit doing event and office space design at Pinterest. Now that I’m freelancing my home is where I get to experiment. :) More on these colored light bathrooms once I get the fixtures up and take more pictures.
I’m currently freelancing at Strava and was lucky enough to be invited to their holiday party tonight at one of my favorite places in SF! Seriously so magical to be among the plants at night with crickets chirping and butterflies snoozing. Best event venue I have ever been to, easily!
Quiet winter night from my kitchen.
So excited about my talk tonight with @designersgeeks at Yelp HQ in SF. I’ll be talking about the power of event design to affect social change. .
ALSO! I’ll be bringing some of my risograph posters, which will be free with donation (suggested $20) to NAACP or International Refugee Assistance Project. I’ll have mail-ready packaging too — they make a great Xmas present, window adornment, wall art, march poster!
Can’t take credit for this amazing image by @laurenlemon and @ryanschude but I will be telling the story behind it and many other events I’ve created/designed at my talk on event design on 12/14 at Yelp HQ at 7 pm. Look up @designersgeeks for all the details!
Secret ingredient in my overnight oats is ... not oatmeal, chia, almond milk, wild blueberries, pumpkin seeds, pumpkin spice. Secret ingredient is ... elderberry sauce! Technically a supplement but adds an amazing POW of berry flavor and a ton of bioavailable vitamin C at the same time.
Loved being gathered with dozens of good people doing farm labor in the sun today. Such a sense of community. Thanks @fatgoldoliveoil for hosting and @magicandrew for getting this shot of me inside a tree, from his viewpoint inside another tree.
Proud of my lovely friend @kathryntomajan for all her hard work (with @robinsloan) learning to farm olives to make an incredible olive oil @fatgoldoliveoil. Had a blast helping her harvest the olives today and can’t wait to go back next weekend!
