I'm originally from Los Angeles, but I have lived in New York for 13 years, since graduating from college, most of that time (except for a year spent in Bergamo, Italy) in Astoria, Queens, which is within walking distance of my current apartment. My boyfriend Jason lives in the apartment with me and is a native of Jersey City, NJ. He works for a nonprofit and does improv on the side. I work in book publishing and teach yoga part-time. We have two cats, three-legged Jules and toothless Truman.
