After 2 years of studying nutrition in college I threw some caution to the wind and moved to Portland, Oregon for pastry school. I finished Pastry School including an internship at a big corporate casino, moved back to Oregon for a job at a smaller big corporate grocery store bakery. I realized all corporations are the same just in time to find the best job on earth at Gathering Together Farm. I worked on my own and had 98% job freedom. I could make anything I wanted as long as I made the famous potato donuts. I was able to practice my art and make people smile along the way.
I planned to stay there forever, until I met the best man on earth…in Ireland.
I made the move over in the summer of 2013 and I’ve never regretted the decision. I love being here with Dec and making our life here for now. We’re traveling souls though, there’s no telling where we’ll end up next.
I am still baking and making pastries but on a smaller scale and less frequently, so for a while the blog might read All Things Pastry and other things.
