Christina, now reformed, once believed that mixing alcohol and coffee was a crime. A long-time Bay Area resident, she hails from the Other Coast (Jersey!) and has spent way too much time in South America and Europe. She discovered her talent as a wordsmith in college and her love of all things epicurean in grad school. When she is not drinking wine by a fire, she is known to craft excellent edibles and spend time with her extended family in New Jersey, New York, Germany, and Switzerland.
