am a native Californian, although I did not grow up here. I was born in Saugus, north of L.A., but moved to Ohio as a child. After some time in Cincinnati, my family moved to a small farm outside of Columbus. I received my Bachelor's degree from Ohio State after studying Agriculture and Economics. I began working in Alaska's fishing industry my Junior summer and moved to Cordova, AK after graduating. After a while, I was ready for a change of scenery and careers. My travels brought me to San Diego where I have been ever since.
