Portland, OR


I'm a baker. Now I teach a cooking class here and there (macarons, anyone?), host cooking meetups, and foist my baked goods on unsuspecting citizens (haha, take that random rhubarb muffin, stranger!). I also write the food blog Portlandivore, which weaves together my life in recipes, photography, and little short stories about my adventures in life, love, and eating tasty food (

I love cooking and baking with local and seasonal ingredients and Portland is the perfect location for both. You'll often find me at the PSU farmer's market swooning over the first Hood strawberries or a bunch of green garlic. I also enjoy traveling to lands far and near, which will influence my cooking choices as well.
