Originally from Durban, South Africa, I moved to the United States with my family in March, 2000, and have lived in Ohio ever since. When I am not immersed in academia, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, reading, binge-watching Netflix shows, cooking and baking, playing pub trivia, watching live music, and hanging out with my fiance, Matt, and my cats, Peanut and Amu.
