Bio

Hey, I'm Alicia Fowler.

I run a spontaneously updated travel blog, Photos & Potatoes, which provides stories, photo essays, travel recommendations, and the occasional potato story for the curious soul.

I have worked in branding in NYC for almost the last decade, most recently as an Associate Strategy Director at FutureBrand. As part-career change, part-branding sabbatical, I will be attending Yale Divinity School this fall to study, well, divinity. Which is a pretty radical shift from my undergraduate studies at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, where Briana and I were once Bloomberg Businessweek models. Yup. (Thankfully all photographic proof was lost to poor internet planning.)

While chances are good I might start the cult of the potato, it's more likely I'll end up doing something awesome and spiritual and you and I will have strangely personal conversations. (Because that is what I have found happens when I tell people I'm going to divinity school.)

And if you're looking for a queer-affirming Christian or Jewish spiritual home in NYC might I offer up some suggestions:

Christian services: St Lydia's in Brooklyn (ELCA) and Bushwick Abbey (Episcopal)

 

Dirty gospel music: Rev Vince Anderson on Monday nights at Union Pool

Jewish: Congregation Best Simchat Torah (non-denominational) and Central Synagogue (Reform)

 
 
 

Finally, I've learned to love a photo:

 I get my good looks, crazy hair, and goofiness from these weirdos. (And my communication skills from my bonus mama, Nancy!)

 Me (with longer hair) and a bunch of (old white) dudes! Naturally, I took a selfie to document the rarity.
