Welcome to twixmixy.com – This website is my personal play-space. It is a website that I’ve been running for over 15 years to list whatever my interest are at the time. Click What Is Twixmixy? to learn more about this site and visit the About The Author page to learn more about me.
I’ve been journaling/blogging all of my life. Just like this website, the content continues to change, but the blog lives on. I have fluctuated as a blogger as well, you can visit my Pic Of The Day project to learn more about my journey of posting a picture every day for a year.
As my journey continues I will be blogging about subjects relative to me, and they will most likely be about my work in designing, my passion for cooking, my desire to learn as much as I can, and this loving life that I get to live.
Along the same lines of my website and blogging, I have been designing for over 15 years. I now have the great privilege to run and work for my own company, Venture Consulting Group with my family. I love what I do and find myself to be continually blessed in my work and in my life. Click my Services page to find out more and to see some of my projects.
During my POTD journey I was also going through a health wake-up call. I was sick and began my journey to find answers and ultimately to heal my body. I visited doctors, found an awesome naturopath, discovered that I have candida, and began cooking every day.
I am still on a yeast (candida) elimination diet on and off after all this time. Currently, the diet is on and it’s worth it for how I feel, compared to how I was feeling. I am mostly following the advice of my naturopath and the theories of Weston A. Price (see Nourishing Traditions), which requires me to cook, culture and ferment on a daily/weekly basis. I love how confident I feel in what I eat and my body loves it too.
I’ve always liked learning and have found it to be useful, but it was taken up to a love for learning when I met my fiancé, Rowan. He grew up in a world of education and is now a teacher. His passion and curiosity for more information has only further ignited that desire to learn within me. Most of the subjects that I’m currently interested in are health, wellness, food, cooking, agriculture, and related activism. One of my biggest efforts outside of reading as much as I can, is my group Charlotte Foodie Meetup. We get together every month to enjoy a potluck together and to learn from an expert in their field. Feel free to join us!
