After graduation from the University of California, Irvine with a degree in International Studies and Spanish, I realized my true calling was to be a wordsmith. Living in almost a dozen places around the world has made me obsessed with discovering new cities and new ways to enjoy life. Albeit clich&eacute;d, my heart has always remained with my family and friends in the San Francisco Bay Area. <br /> <br /> I&nbsp;am fanatical about food (cooking it and eating it), reading trashy British novels, writing stories with below-the-brow humor, painting Bombay taxicabs, elephant paraphernalia, and dancing to Madonna. I&nbsp;am currently happily working as an Editorial Coordinator here at DivineCaroline. I love being a part of the innovative, fiery, and hilarious women on our fabulous site! <br /> <br /> One day I hope to run a marathon, have six-pack abs, and my own show on the Food Network. (Clearly, I am a believer in dreams, even impossible ones.) <br /> <br />
