My name is Jordan E. Bucher, formerly Jordan E. Pitcher, aka Wondertwin, Tadpole, Jojo, Jordie. I live in Austin, TX by way of NYC for 7 years, London for a stop, Minnesota for 4 years, and Kansas for 18 very long years.
I am married to Matt for 5 years, and we have a son Henry Wallace who is 2.5. Two crazy shelties named Riley and Nacho also live with us. Riley herds sheep and vacuum cleaners in her sleep. Nacho eats poop, climbs on tables, and then eats them, too. Nacho is for sale.
When I gave birth to my son, my world came undone. Once I put the pieces back together, everything looked completely different. I left my 11 year career in publishing and became a postpartum doula. Now I can sleep at night knowing I’ve given my families a net in this crazy game we call parenting.
I once was a red meat lover, but now I am basically vegan. I would be completely vegan if not for the Dirty Sanchez taco at Torchy’s. I used to be fascinated by bran but I guess once you become practically vegan you no longer need to think about bran. I once was an insanely competitive runner who did some yoga on the side. I came to the hard realization that the competition was only feeding my OCD so now I only practice yoga and am much more zen. I think I will always be interested in sending inappropriate emails to unintended recipients and also red wine.
I am proud to say I was a cupcake artist at Magnolia Bakery back in the day, way before the Saturday Night Live rap. I have met Carrie Bradshaw and Felicity, and once Kyle McLaughlin flirted with me.
