Self-taught baker with a passion for community development, music and social justice. I started my working life as a journalist- ever on the search for more information, more knowledge, more skills. After graduate school, I took a job as a government analyst. I took my passion for baking to the next level with a small bakery in Dayton, Thistle Confections, which I owned for four years. I have since re-entered public service. This blog is my opportunity to geek out over food and baking.
