Bringing together plant-based, cultured, and fermented ingredients serving up hot and fresh mouth-watering sandwiches and comfort foods that will tantalize omnivores and herbivores alike!
I’m a settler of Celtic, Anglo-Saxon, and Scandinavian descent who was born and raised on the unceded and occupied territories of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh Nations, in Vancouver. I grew up in Southeast Vancouver in a working class family and did some more growing up in Montréal and Toronto as an adult before finding my way back home. As a queer non-binary person I’ve focused on building community primarily in East Van. I’ve spent time volunteering in the queer community, which included co-organizing a bi-monthly dance party. I’ve spent time working in the Craft Beer industry and have a deep passion for all things fermented and cultured, and maintain a vegan practice. In recent years I’ve worked as a Graphic Designer and Digital Prepress Operator and have a Communication Design Essentials Certificate from Emily Carr University of Art + Design and BCIT. The last few years of working in Print Production really focused my awareness on the impacts that that industry has on worker health and the environment. That realization motivated me to take new steps towards discovering a more meaningful source of employment through entrepreneurship and building partnerships between my community and communities in need. I’m curious about exploring the intersections between Food Justice, Social Justice, and exciting tasty plant-based food.
