In case you wondered about the people behind LOTUSWEI, I wanted to share a bit about our small, but growing team. What we all have in common is that we LOVE working for a good cause (like saving the world through flowers!) and we love making people happy.

TAYLOR {Beauty Revealer}

Taylor loves being able to capture the essence of a place through photos, videos, + sound clips! Taking random road trips, hiking, + discovering new coffee shops whenever she can are just a few things that fuel her creativity. A life long passion of Taylor's is playing sand volleyball + her favorite eats: fish tacos, any asian dish, + raw vegan cheesecake. She's a lover of superhero movies, spending time with her grandma in Idaho, getting really lost (but not too lost) in the wild, + tai chi. Taylor doesn't hate many things but blue cheese + being too cold are the exceptions. If you catch her daydreaming there's a good chance it's about her secret dream of becoming a choreographer for pop music videos. This beauty revealer is AMAZING at giving people the space to talk, open up, + immediately feel understood + at ease.

Wherever Kate is, she simply enjoys sitting outside + enjoying the view! She loves using her knowledge of the profound + transformative impact of flower essences to expand the ripple effect of the amazing, magical power of flowers.

JIMMY {Energizing Force of LOTUSWEI Singapore}

Jimmy lives in Singapore, though he's been making frequent trips to Nepal, as in the photo above. He's jovial, has a huge heart and loves sunsets. He knows all the secrets to making Peking Duck, an extraordinarily exquisite Chinese dish that requires two whole days of preparation. He's observant, fearless, strategic + appreciative of the little (big) things in life. He likes to learn about other cultures + has traveled quite a bit. He can 'jimmy-rig' (jerry-rig) just about anything with duct tape; if he got stranded on an island he would welcome the challenge.

KATIE {Flower Alchemist + Prolific Visionary}

I'm a flower freak. I'm giddiest when I'm taking iphonography photos of crazy-looking flowers & plants in jungles, forests or botanical gardens. I've traveled to just under 20 countries & though everywhere has its charm, I feel totally at home in Asia. Yellow & orange fruits bring me joy - like persimmons, mangos, jackfruit & nectarines - though sometimes I think I could just live on kombucha & dark chocolate. I love Korean-style bathhouses & Japanese hot springs & I believe 100% in the power of meditation.
