Interests

What I read

I read all the time! Most days I can be found twisting my hair through my fingertips completely engrossed in some sort of smutty romance novel. Some days, it's the theater section, what's happening locally and virtually anything enlightening!

Side projects

I love living in LA! Having been born and raised in New England, I am embracing living in SoCal and travelling on the weekends in search of new restaurants, hiking spots, historical places and just breathing in the light and activity of the city.
