Alicia moved to downtown Tacoma at 19 with her cat, Kylo, after growing up in University Place playing her favorite game, soccer. She LOVES baking bread, especially focaccia. Desserts like cookies and cakes are a close second. It was at the tender age of 16 while working at a local pizza place that her zeal for cooking took root. Her top two ingredients to experiment with in the kitchen are lavender and truffle. Alicia also appreciates different forms of art such as tattooing, drawing, photography, and cosmetology.
