I was born and raised in a tiny suburb of Los Angeles called Toluca Lake. As a small child I was briefly featured in a news story about the wild success of the Teddy Ruxpin toy. I used to stake out garage sales in my neighborhood, so I could set up lemonade stands in high traffic areas. Perhaps unsurprisingly, I now work in advertising. For fun, and sometimes for money, I draw and design things. I'm really into Disney in a Mary Blair but not giant character sweatshirt kind of way. I like short stories (A Perfect Day for Bananafish) and long movies (Dr. Zhivago). See Facebook for a more complete list of movies, books, and music I say I like to accumulate social clout.
