I grew up in the Midwest, suburbs of Chicago. My father grew up on a farm in southern MN so we always had a vegetable and herb garden. In LA, I grow herbs and potted plants. We also have tomatoes, snap peas and a kumquat tree.
I majored in Mandarin Chinese and Spanish earning a double BA in language and literature from the University of Illinois – Champaign Urbana.
