  2. I am originally from Finland and moved to the United States in 1989, at age nine.

  3. I am a still life photography enthusiast. My favorite things to photograph are heart shapes and toys.

  4. I got my first pair of glasses at nine months old. I had  hereditary congenital cataracts  which required multiple eye surgeries. My vision is too poor to drive.
