I'm a SoCal native who has loved watching basketball and writing for as long as I can remember, so I'm finally incorporating both of my passions into one endeavor: sports blogging. I have a history degree from UC San Diego and have been writing for Lakers Nation since November 2010. I am easily one of the most obsessed, passionate, die-hard, informed, intelligent and emotional Los Angeles Lakers fangirls that you will ever meet! In addition to the Lakers I also love football, epic historical movies, reading, baking, chai lattes, and Bill Simmons.
