Who Is Marla Sarris?

Marla SarrisI am, silly :)

Hey there and welcome. How exciting that you want to know more about me.

First off, I’m not a big fan of writing but here are some tweet-sized facts about me.

What’s new?

  • I manage projects and shoot people for SPYR Media.
  • Jeff and I have been living Primal since 2008 and I love to be creative in the kitchen and cook Paleo / Primal meals.
  • I released my first Paleo cookbook, Pigskin Paleo: Game Day Recipes, on September 5th, 2012 and my second Los Paleo: Mexican Recipes on May 5th, 2013.
  • I love traveling with my husband Jeff but our travel blog has been neglected for bigger and better things.
  • WARRIOR workouts and triathlon training are some of my fav. Lately heavy lifting has been keeping me motivated each day and you’ve likely seen me do a handstand or two. I’ve already completed the sprint distance and eventually I’d like to complete an olympic distance triathlon.
  • We embrace minimalism and try to live a meaningful life through our experiences and on our own terms, not through our stuff.
  • You can find me on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, Instagram and Pinterest where I typically post Paleo Porn, photos from our travels and probably a pic or two of Alpha. Come say hello :)

Old News

  • I taught High School Algebra for six years before I decided to make a big change and leave the profession all together.
  • I was a baton twirler for almost 20 years, starting at age 5. I’m the reason my high school has a drill team and also why the current members are allowed to twirl fire baton at each football game.

A little secret about me, I’ve always wanted to be Miss America! I went after that dream recently and competed as a contestant in the Mrs. Illinois America pageant in 2013.
