I grew up in the San Fernando Valley, moved to Northern CA for college, then back to LA for grad school and have been here since. I love LA winters, still haven't managed to lose my sock tan (yes I am 2 shades of pale). I work with children and love my job, even though it took a while to get where I am. I like to run, bike and be active, but can still sleep til noon on the weekends if given the chance. I am driven but more on the mellow side, maybe that doesn't quite make sense but it works.
