I've been threatening to start a food blog since moving to the Bay Area in 2007.
When I decided to shut down my startup, TRY Studio, I knew I needed some time for creative play so I pulled the trigger and made it happen! It's called Kitchen + Away because I love to cook while home but also while traveling. It's so magical to be able to learn a place through their food and then try to make it. There's a whole new level of understanding tucked in each location's food system and their relationship to food.
Below are some recent photos. Check out Kitchen + Away for more!
This was easily the most harrowing project I've ever worked on. Front Line Defenders, FLD, was looking to redesign their website. After reading over the content, I wanted to put the spotlight on the brave human right defenders, tell their story, and make the impact of their work known.
In order to spread the word about TRY Studio, I exhibited at events and shows, put on workshops, and hosted breakout sessions at conferences. It was a fantastic way to find new users, engage with my users (both seasoned and new), which provided immediate feedback.
