I was born in El Paso, Texas, where the salsa is made, on December 14th, 1979.  At age 2, I moved to State College, Pennsylvania, home of the Penn State Nittany Lions.  In 1988 I moved to Tokyo, Japan, where I attended the American School in Japan.  After graduating, I went to Cornell University, my beloved alma mater, and now reside in Los Angeles.  I am currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Social and Health Psychology at UCLA.
