Me at MCA Cropped - Amber Powell Asakura

Amber Asakura



In a nutshell...

Amber first picked up a (film!) camera for her high school photography class and instantly fell in love. A whole lotta years later, after a decade in the very un-creative world of accounting, she “retired” and made photography her full-time job.

Being part of Team Dirty is a freaking dream for Amber. She gets to combine her love of photography, styling, and healthy plant based recipes while working with a hilarious, supportive group of people who are directly changing the lives of others through food and community.

When she’s not making food, eating food, or taking pictures of food, she’s probably running, browsing thrift stores for hidden treasures, or snuggling with her husband and their four kitties.

What do you enjoy batching to? (music, podcasts, audiobooks, etc..)

My “goth-spel” Pandora station. It’s a strange, wonderful mix of synthpop/witch house and old gospel music.

What are your top three favorite CFDG recipes?

Pizza Burgers, Caesar Dressing, and “the Best Plant Based Mac and Cheese, Hands Down” (that title is no exaggeration!)

Why do you like being part of the Dirty team?

Working with such a supportive, encouraging, food-loving, hilarious team is incredible.

The quality I love most about myself is...

My compassion for humans and animals.

How does eating plants enrich your life?

Improved digestion, better sleep, clearer skin, more energy…and bonus, I get to have a plant based photography business taking pics of food I love.
