Meet the Outlaw Kitchen Crew

 

Leni Heil leni@outlawkitchen.com

Leni Heil is a native of Humboldt County. She majored in Art and Political Science at Humboldt State and Southern Oregon Universities, but learned her true passion- cooking, in restaurants and her own kitchen.

Her background is in restaurants and retail management. She has been cooking and experimenting with food most of her life. She’s worked every aspect of the restaurant industry- from dishwasher to manager- including teaching cooking classes and selling kitchen equipment.

Before Outlaw Kitchen, Leni managed various Sur La Table stores in Portland, Oregon.  At Sur La Table she had the opportunity to work with some of the best cookbook authors and chefs in the Northwest. Her specialty is vegan fare.

She loves traveling and being active in the outdoors, especially snowboarding and wakeboarding. This year she is learning to river kayak and surf. On her days off she loves to go play with the amazing Outlaw crew and her sweet pit-bull Chloe. 

 

Kai Ferrara kai@outlawkitchen.com

Kai Ferrara- Life on intentional communities in remote mountains of Northern California taught Kai Ferrara organic farming, wilderness survival, ecological preservation, off–the-grid living, and a blooming connection to the natural world. He carries these values thru college in biology and environmental science, to grad school in business, and out into the world. Through this diversity of experience, Kai masters knowledge to understand the intricacies of the world, to create solutions, and to empower the community around him. Kai is involved in a wide variety of deep projects that focus on community, conservation, education, agriculture, real estate, and entertainment. For Kai, life is a fun opportunity, and the work of life should create positive change and enhance that fun. Matching that mindset with his love for music and dance, Kai joins the transformational soul-healing music festivals with an organic offering, Outlaw Kitchen. Additionally, he plays the plethora of decades of production roles and provides professional sound and light production at prominent events nationwide, as 12BC Pro. Kai is an optimist and an “imagine-ary”. He loves to joke around, but wears many hats, and applies himself to the world with sophisticated intentions. His desire to foster gatherings, connectedness, energy sharing, ideas, and working together combines with his mentality of “Let’s do it,” fusing into Enchanted Forest and Once Upon.
