Personal Quote:

My family is from Elmhurst, Queens, 54th Avenue, but I was born in Northern California. It's really funny, you know, [my bio] says 'Brazil' making me feel really exotic and cultured, but actually, I was born in Santa Rosa, California. I'm from Sonoma County, and they're saying 'Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil.'
