Kiya is a recent Seattle transplant, and contrary to her South Floridian roots, she loves grey skies and rainy days.
After pursuing a career in concert dance in New York City for the past 5 years, Kiya turned to her first love, food, for a career swap. Self-taught and wild about cooking, you can find Kiya in the kitchen most days, developing creations for her cooking blog, kiyafries.
Kiya also works as a freelance photographer, crafting images and stop-motion videos for brands.
A teacher at heart, Kiya aims to communicate useful cooking techniques, and overall, to spread joy.
When she isn’t creating or teaching, you can find her tending to her container gardens, snuggling her cat, scrolling Pinterest, and listening to true crime podcasts.
