About Ignite

If you had 5 minutes on stage what would you say? What if you only got 20 slides and they rotated automatically after 15 seconds?

Around the world geeks have been putting together Ignite nights to enlighten us – quickly.

Challah-back Girl

Lisa Smith



For as long as she can remember, Lisa loved to create art. For even longer than she can remember, she also loved to eat two or three meals a day. So in order to continue doing the eating part, she decided to go into graphic design. If she’s not up to her elbows in PMS chips and paper swatch books, chances are Lisa will be in the kitchen, up to her earlobes in sourdough starter and turbinado sugar. After all, a girl’s gotta eat.

What is it about baked, carb-y goodness that sets my heart on fire? Baking is equal parts alchemy, artistry and luck, with a dash of adventure. And butter. Don't forget the butter. Gluten is magic. Let me show you how a few simple, inexpensive ingredients can transform your meals and your life.
