Hometown:  Portland, Oregon

Fun Facts About Me:  I reside in Hollywood, CA, but I grew up in Oregon and attended University of Oregon School Of Journalism and Communication. I am a scuba diver with many certifications. When I am not working at the PETA office, I book punk shows at small venues in the Los Angeles area. I also like playing and collecting original Nintendo games. Before PETA, I have worked in the music industry and also at animal shelters. I know first-hand the importance of spaying and neutering, so please spay and neuter your companion animals!

Favorite Bands:  Screeching Weasel, Minor Threat, Adolescents, Deftones, Death By Stereo, The Unseen, Leftover Crack, The Distillers, Mischief Brew, Jawbreaker, Misfits, Against Me!, Rancid, Descendents, Nirvana, Street Dogs, NOFX, Detroit Cobras, + so many more!

Likes:  Animal liberation, video games, my dog Baxter, my friends, The Price Is Right, music, going to shows, playing bass poorly, sandwiches, snuggling, micro-breweries, cruelty-free make-up, checking out new bands, LA Dodgers, scuba diving, Will Ferrell, Lil Bub, and traveling.

Dislikes: Animal cruelty, driving, onions, waking up early, Sea World, and rudeness.

Companion Animals: I grew up with three amazing adopted cats as part of my family. Although I still love cats, I now live with the best Chihuahua ever, Baxter! About 8 years ago I adopted Baxter at the shelter I worked for. We’ve been best friends ever since.
