Some things about me:

I’m an almost native Southern Californian, living now in the Santa Monica Mountains in the middle of oaks, coyotes, and red tailed hawks.  I remember Pony Land and Adventure Through Inner Space.

The superhero I most identify with is Elastigirl.

I like travel, colored pencils, Islamic architecture, Star Trek, washi tape, 80s music, yoga, and maps.

I write short stories.  All are true.  And all are false.
