The youngest of 6 children, I was born and raised in the Los Angeles suburbs at a time when a kid spent all day wandering outdoors. In the 2nd grade at my school’s summer fair, I won twice in the cakewalk. Taking two cakes home I realized life had much to offer even if one WAS completely covered in coconut. That’s been my life in a nutshell. I moved to in August 2009 with the love of my life, where I jotted down the daily wanderings of an LA girl trying to find her way in Shanghai.
My newest adventure now takes us all to Manhattan and so the story continues…
