I am from New Orleans (born in Houston but raised in N'awlins!). Most of my extended family still lives there but me and my siblings have managed to scatter ourselves around the country. My mom still lives in NOLA so I visit there often. Right now I am in graduate school in San Francisco and work pretty crazy hours, but I love what I do so it doesn't usually feel like "work". For fun, I live to cook, travel, and read (plus I have a nice list of TV series I catch up on when I have time...my guilty pleasure!).
