About the Author

Rivki Silver

Rivki Silver wants to do all the things. In her creative endeavors, sometimes she feels more like a musician, spending time performing, composing, teaching, and, occasionally, making videos with dancing produce. Sometimes she feels more like a writer, typing pieces which can be found around the internet, and some on her blog, which she named before branding was a thing. Most (all?) of the time she is a wife, mother and community member, living in Cleveland with her husband and four children. Because this is an "about me" blurb, she feels compelled to include that she was a fellow in the 2016 Cleveland Jewish Arts and Culture Lab, and is currently the principal clarinetist in the Cleveland Women's Orchestra.
