I was born and raised in Phoenix. I went to ASU and got a degree in Journalism (although you probably can't tell from reading this--I am not great at writing these profiles...). Although I can come across as shy at first, I'm the furthest thing from it once you get to know me. I'm a huge sports fan. In particular, I'm a huge San Francisco Giants fan, as well as the Suns, Cardinals, and of course my beloved Sun Devils. I've been told I have a quirky sense of humor, and that I look like Jon Belushi, Joaquin Phoenix, and, most recently, Jonah Hill. I'm not sure if these are compliments or insults, but I guess beauty lies in eyes of the beholder.
Although I rarely (if ever) attend Synagogue outside of the High Holidays, I consider myself a proud Reformative Jew. I don't keep kosher or Shabbat, but I wrote for the Jewish News of Greater Phoenix after college, and my family has been part of the local Jewish community for 30+ years.
