I’m a Los Angeles native based in London — I got here via Boston, a second stint in LA, Rochester NY, and Chicago.  I never went to Burning Man or served in the Peace Corps, but I did spend a lot of time in school.  Due to the five years I spent in Rochester, I’m an expert at scraping ice off windshields.  Due to having grown up in LA, I don’t know how to layer, and I still think it’ll be warm out when the sky is clear.
