I WAS BORN TO A FASHION DESIGNER/THEOLOGIAN AND POSEIDON OFF OF THE COAST OF CALIFORNIA IN THE LATE '80'S. I WAS RAISED IN a suburb of LOS ANGELES AND GREW UP ON FAIRY TALES, MUSEUMS, THEME PARKS, CLASSIC LITERATURE, PULP MOVIES, THE CURE, AND MISMATCHED CHUCK TAYLORS. I WON MY FIRST WRITING AWARD AS A PRE-TEEN. MY EDUCATIONAL BACKGROUND WAS DEVOTED TO THE ARTS AND THE MEDIA; I'VE GOT A BA IN DIRECTING THEATER AND AN MA IN MEDIA STUDIES. I'M A JANE OF ALL TRADES AND A MASTER OF NONE - and yes, I'm oftentimes better than a master of one.  THIS LIFESTYLE BLOG IS DEDICATED TO LIVING AN ALTERNATIVE LIFE IN LA AND ORANGE COUNTY.
