About Helen Jane

Hi! I’m Helen Jane. That’s me on the left.
(Husband and children about me.)

My handsome programmer/musician husband and I live in California’s beautiful Napa Valley with our two daughters. I work in wine and lifestyle marketing. It’s pretty fun.

My bocce team, Joanie Loves Bocce, plays weekly in our city’s bocce league. We celebrate with a weekly potluck theme.

I’ve planned my dinner for about 12 years now, you can see most of them here on my Flickr account.

We throw a lot of parties. My party tips have been featured in Better Homes and Gardens, Readers Digest and Ladies Home Journal.

I love talking about creativity.
Check out my keynote Ignite talk from the 2011 EVO Conference. I love to inspire creativity at events like Mom 2.0 and SXSW.

I founded Cheesewhizzes, the nation-wide cheese club. You can read an article about it in Food and Wine magazine.

This internet web log, helenjane.com has been updated since September 1998. That means I’ve been blogging for sixteen years. Goodness.

I like the cut of your jib.
