Michael Hebb studied literature at Reed College and architecture at Portland State University before going on to cofound the City Repair Project and Communitecture with architect/activist Mark Lakeman in 1998. In 2001, Hebb opened an illegal restaurant in his Portland living room called Family Supper, a project that soon grew into an experimental restaurant group called ripe. After moving to Seattle in 2006, Hebb established One Pot to investigate the rituals of the table by collaborating with leading cultural organizations, museums and individuals including Gore Vidal, Spike Lee, Gloria Steinem and many others.
