I was born and raised in West Philadelphia (cue theme song from Fresh Prince, and the fact that no, I did not live in the Suburbs.) I am the youngest of four siblings and the only boy and was raised by awesome former hippies who I have called Mothership and Pancho my entire life. They have given me good parking karma which helps in LA and great outlook on life. I have been in LA since 2008 and have a Love/Hate relationship with it. The love grows better each year but I WILL NEVER GET USED TO OR ACCEPT THE DRIVING!!! I love food, cooking it and eating it. I like to laugh. I like to make up words and pretend they are real and use them in regular daily vernacular. I love movies and music and experiencing them both. I am classic frugal east coast member of the tribe who generally hugs the first time I meet someone.
