Q&A

Tell us a little about yourself

I am native to the beautiful Central Coast of California, and I’ve lived my whole life up and down the Southern California coast.  I love dance, art, and New York City.  I attended UC Irvine for my BFA in dance and CSU Long Beach for my MFA in Dance.  I’m a big contemporary art nerd and fanatic!  

What about Baking for Good interests you to join our team?

What is there not to love about Baking for Good?  Quality handmade ingredients and proceeds go to a cause! It’s like a match made in heaven. But what really makes me excited is that all the people on the Baking for Good team are extremely amazing and talented, not to mention very kind and selfless (a perfect reflection of the BFG mission).

What would be your dream job?

I think I’m living my dream job already.  Aside from my awesome job here, I perform with an international touring aerial spectacle company called Australia’s Strange Fruit (hence my picture!).  The company provides free public, accessible art all over the world for people of all ages, social classes, and backgrounds.  

What’s your favorite BFG treat so far or can’t wait to try

My favorite treat, at least so far, is the Pumpkin Whoopie Pie! In fact, I just wrote a short story on it in our blog!  You could find it here: http://bkfr.gd/159hSJ7

Anything else you’d like to share?

My favorite color is mustard and I miss my dog back in CA.  His name is Kristofer Brown.

Special ‘snaps for a special ‘scream. We’re gearing up for our October flavors of the month (TBA next week!) by chompin’ on some gingersnaps made by local bakers and friends, Baking for Good. We love working with Baking for Good and here’s why.
We’ve become friends with founder Emily Dubner over the years. She’s great.
They donate 15% of all proceeds to charity.
Their wares are legit, and when we collaborate, they are always willing to create special goodies for us. Like the mini snaps above. Or the rum balls for our Red Rum flavor of the month October 2011 (shown below).
We are hoping they’ll make us some of their super rad Instagrahams one day.
