ASHA DORNFEST

Writer and Podcaster in Portland, Oregon

Listen to my podcast

I'm a writer, podcaster, community organizer, volunteer, and insistent optimist.

I'm the author of Parent Hacks: 134 Genius Shortcuts for Life With Kids (Workman Publishing, 2016), an illustrated collection of clever workarounds and creative reuses for new parents.

I co-host the weekly Edit Your Life podcast with Christine Koh. We talk about decluttering your home, schedule, and mental space without getting bogged down by perfection or expectations -- expanding upon what we wrote about in our book Minimalist Parenting: Enjoy Modern Family Life More by Doing Less(Routledge, 2013).

I live in Portland, Oregon with my husband, 18 year-old son, and 14 year-old daughter.

I believe people are generally good, smart, and generous. I do my best to share that message every day.
