About this Newsletter

I’m Lorraine, a Seattle-based gardener, food writer that loves music. I grew up in New Jersey amid oak trees, chemical plants, highways and pizza. Seattle’s my home now, a place of nature, gray skies, books and coffee.

I’m a writer and language lover; I almost became an English teacher before I was seduced into a tech career by a sprinkling of javascript, a unix prompt and and an open-source operating system. I love food, sailing, gardening and in general adore funny, odd, intelligent people that wear their heart on their sleeve.

I’m currently working at Rosehip Studio and it has a its own newsletter, too!


You won’t have to worry about missing anything. Every new edition of the newsletter goes directly to your inbox. In addition, paid subscribers can expect:

  • A subscriber-only book club.

  • A monthly Sunday evening calming and meditative virtual art session (8 PM PST)

  • Eventually, the owner of a t-shirt
