Jen is from Texas, so don’t try to pass off your crappy inferior barbecue from anywhere else on her. She’s got an art and art history background, so she’s more likely than not to bore you by blabbering on about composition and depth of field. Jen been addicted to consuming sequential art since late middle school. Other hobbies include eating, baking and cooking, watching cartoons, being Asian and eagerly anticipating whatever project Joss Whedon does next.
