Handmade Pasta: My Skillshare Class is Live!

 

Finally, my dream of being an instructor on Skillshare has come true! Last weekend I wrote, filmed, performed in, and edited my very own twenty-minute class on how to make, you guessed it, handmade pasta. I used two DSLR cameras and my iPhone as a mic, placed out of frame and then synced up the audio later. Continue reading

Fresh Eats Food Shuttle—Redefining Food Deserts

Just nearly a year ago I went to see Jon Fasman from The Economist speak in Atlanta about “why it’s expensive to be poor“, and he spoke specifically about food deserts. This was a concept I’d never heard of before—in nutshell, a food desert is an area of a city or town where the residents don’t have reasonable access to fresh meat and produce. Specifically, they live in a region that is more than one mile away from a grocery store. Usually, these residents only have access to crappy mini marts with Honey Buns and Twinkies as their sustenance. They can’t call Uber (and even if they can, a $15 trip is precious cash to a low income family), and when they do make the trek to a grocery store, it takes several hours of grueling transit that could be spent doing other things.

Music Festival Schedule Temporary Tattoos

As of July 2014, I’ve been to four major music festivals in my life. I know this isn’t a ton, but I’ve already experienced my share of the heat, the rain, the walking, the sweating, and the dancing. I’m a schedule person—I like to know when to be where, and who I’m seeing. Festivals usually give out paper brochures or booklets that let you keep track of your weekend, but what if they get soggy and wet in the torrential downpour of Shaky Knees 2014? What if you keep your schedule in your phone and the phone dies?
