Hello there, nice to meet you.
I am Ruby, the writer, dancer, photographer, choreographer and general human behind the scenes of this whole little space. I was born and raised in Minneapolis, MN and have lived in Tangier, Morocco for the past 4 years. In my daily life, I teach dance classes, train and work in the studio, write for this blog + other projects, make frequent travel plans, and cook, explore our city and laugh a lot with M, my husband who I originally met here in Morocco.
When someone asks what I do in my life, my first reply is usually contemporary dance choreographer. Which, in general, is at the forefront of my work and passion. However, in life and in this space I am also an experimental baker, a certified yoga teacher, vigorous traveler, blogger, amateur photographer, bookworm, foodie, and life-long writer. While several of these interests may seem to be unrelated, none can exist alone. I believe that being a better reader makes me a better dancer. Being more knowledgable about food makes me a better traveler. Basically, the more curiosity and interests present in my life, the more rich it becomes.
I strive to emanate creativity in everything I do, from daily tasks to baking birthday cakes to dance performances. My kind of creativity is generous- full and giving and unlimited. It applies to every aspect of my life and I intend for it to be a never-draining source as long as I can think and breathe.
This space here is where I share my reflections, inspirations, curiosities, and hope to open up communication and connection between like-minded individuals trying to live life as deeply and fully as possible.
If you want to hear more about my dance work and background, look over here.

or read a little bit more about my eating philosophy (and how I got started with all of this food stuff in the first place) here.
