Our Community Spotlights are back! 
We do our best to give you great talks, inspiring spaces, and tasty coffee every month, but the best part of CreativeMornings is the people. So we’re showcasing a few of the faces of CMSF, and you could be next!


What do you love about San Francisco?

The farmers’ markets. I’m obsessed with produce and the farmers’ markets in this city make me swoon. Every week I aim to visit 2 different markets… it may seem excessive, but the ritual is very meditative. 

What do you enjoy most about CreativeMornings?

The people! It’s an incredible self-selected group of people who are engaged in the speaker or activity. I love that they listen attentively and no one seems to be on their phone… it’s refreshing. Also, the CM community is extremely well-dressed, so the style inspiration is a bonus. What are a few of your favorite themes/talks/speakers we’ve had here in SF?

Erin Gilmore: The power and healing in owning your mess.
Also, the January theme of Anxiety is one I could talk about endlessly. 

What’s one thing you’ve been inspired by lately?

People watching in The Marina. Never ceases to amaze and entertain. 

What is one piece of advice that is overrated?

Break-ups need closure; in my experience, the closure comes from time and space.

Where can people find out more about you (Twitter, Instagram, or website)?

Instagram (@thecompostcook), where you can find me creating some 5 am doodles, with frequent running breaking, or spotlights on my dog, Moses Waffles. Photo by: Ben Conde @kidconde
