Proudly Latinasian NorCal American.
I'll try any media from anywhere if the story or style piques my interest. I understand Spanish better than I speak it, and muddle through other Latinate languages. Working towards intermediate-level Japanese, improving my Tagalog skills, and learning basic Norwegian and Irish.
Supports Arsenal, the San Jose Earthquakes, and the US men's and women's teams. Rambles about film noir in the dark hours of the morning. Takes very amateur photos of cooking experiments and nature. One of the rare few who enjoy running.
