Did you just begin to sing the song in French made popular by the Singing Nun? That's okay, it happens often. Dominique is a Southern California native who works for the U.S. Green Building Council. This means she spends a good amount of time looking at sustainability through the lens of architecture and design. She also has a 'growing' interest in sustainable food and agriculture. She joined the blog team in hopes that we all can come together to create one incredibly tasty, local, sustainable, beautiful life.
Likes: discovering new small-batch artisan coffees, authors whose books you can't put down, and lipstick that stays on through all of these adventures.
Dislikes: Green labels that don't really mean anything.
A Note: She also has a great sense of humor, which we think is an essential quality in a good (our) editor.
