Celine grew up in the Bay Area, literally down the street from Apple, and later escaped to San Diego for undergrad. She got so spoiled by beaches and good weather, she now thinks NorCal is cold. In her free time, Celine satisfies her love for food with culinary tourism, sous vide, and sourdough. Intermittently, she guiltily counteracts the consequences of her love with hiking and badminton.
