LOS ANGELES, California
I'm a screenwriter/journalist in lovely Hollywood, CA. I go to a lot of social events, which means lots of baaaad food and wine. So since moving to L.A., I've become MUCH more active - I spend a lot of time outdoors to work off that stuff - and it's become so much more than just physical - it's mental too.
