Adrianne Dow Young
writer. cook. kitten wrangler. grower.
Maui born and Northwest raised, I grew up at an eclectic table surrounded by a creative family. My work is informed by a life of following my curiosity and by turning my passions into businesses.
As a career-long writer with boutique agency roots, I have created taglines, brochures, web content and ads. I've also published non fiction manuscripts. While I have written it all, my work is now focused on helping people to thrive with the planet instead of on top of it.
I am also the owner and operator of Bitte Bitte Leavenworth, a busy private chef service that provides allergy sensitive meals to arts and environment organizations. A passion for life at the table has allowed me to own a deep organic farm, a restaurant, and a career as a travelling chef. In my spare time, I create clean-minimal ingredient skincare under the label Persephone's Ball. (As a fulltime, solo parent, I don't have a lot of spare time.)
On the perpetual side of life, I socialize feral cats and for placement in indoor-only homes.
About the Photos
My great grandmother, Sara, was a people-watcher. Our favorite thing to do together was to sit in the Impala and watch a busy parking lot. She'd do the crossword and make up stories about the people who passed by.
