Biography

I'm a California native who attended the University of California in Berkeley, where I took the full range of pre-med classes while majoring in English Literature. In addition to my current home in Berkeley, CA, I've lived in Brighton, England; Madrid, Spain; Buenos Aires, Argentina; Tel Aviv, Israel; and Washington, D.C. I've crossed Spain by foot, the Atlantic Ocean by boat and Nairboi by matatu. I love bringing my international, multicultural perspective, including my Spanish and French speaking abilitiies, to all of my work. When I'm not working, I enjoy camping, hiking, creating art, watching movies and trying to keep up with the latest internet trends.
