A California native, Alicia has been known to "play with words the way a child plays in puddles."  Alicia can be found laughing hysterically at ridiculous calques and bilingual puns, and in her free time plans to conquer the Iberian Peninsula by learning Euskera, Catalán, and Gallego in addition to her current language repertoire. She has never finished Julio Cortázar’s Rayuela.
