Aria Silva-Espinosa

Likes: Lecturing on social inequalities, cats, gay bars, grilled cheese, hokey crystal stores and binge watching Forensic Files. Dislikes: Racism, hot sauce that isn't hot enough, parking tickets. Aria lives in Silver Lake, Los Angeles with her two cats and two roommates who actually own and care for the cats. She received her B.A. in Sociology from Southeastern Louisiana University and the degree itself now sits in the back of her closet gathering dust. She can usually be found haunting the Echoplex or Charles Bukowski's old hangout, the Smog Cutter. She isn't very friendly but would give you the shirt off her back if you asked, depending on which shirt it is.
