Kacey Waxler - Associate Producer
A yoga instructor and writer based in Paso Robles, California, Kacey is a series of contradictions, which keeps her readily bobbing between serenely balanced and questionably unhinged- Type-A dreamer, chatty introvert, restless homebody, clumsy adventurer. Off record, her nose curves slightly to the left when she smiles and her belly button is outrageously big. Her friends say she quotes obscure movie lines and dances like an old man. She dislikes small talk, has a habit of interrupting so I can ask a series of annoyingly in-depth questions, and loves spontaneous tea dates that throw off an entire day’s plan. kaceyjaneen.com
