In her free time she can usually be found at The Potters' Studio in Berkeley, or more likely curled up with her cat Luka watching Ghibli movies. She has visited cat cafes around the world and is finally embarking on her own adventure with Calico Café.

Luka Potato, Co-Founder

Luka (aka Potato aka Bean aka Chappie) is a proud rescue cat from Oakland's Cat Town Cafe. Lisa and Luka met and their connection was undeniable from the very beginning. When she asked him at the end of her visit, "Do you want to come home with me?" he literally jumped into her arms. The rest is history.

Luka enjoys getting in to mischief around the house and making art with toilet paper when no one is looking. His favourite wet food is anything with tuna.
