Eh em… I was born April 24, 1987 and raised in Valencia, California, which has forever forced me to follow up that statement with, “yes, that’s where Six Flag Magic Mountain is,” and “no, I don’t have a season pass.” I finally broke free after 18 years of boring suburban life and found myself on a real rollercoaster, called Arizona State University. After 4 (fine…5) years of majoring in journalism and having the time of my life with incomparable friends (who helped inspire Siding with Plato) I grew up, graduated, and entered the working world . . . as an unpaid intern.
