Brief Biographical Sketch:

Hailing from the East Coast, I have worn black since seventh grade. I sleep occasionally and procrastinate more. Besides eating/cooking, I love creative writing, volunteering, swimming, and jamming to electronic/dance and hard rock/metal music. Some of my things to do before I die: own a food truck, donate a million dollars, and walk the Great Wall of China.
