La-iya Tanedo is named for the root word of freedom in Tagalog. Tagalog is not some sort of spiced sausage but one of the native languages of Luzon, Philipines. Or it used to be a native language- it is slowly mutating into a lower form of American English. Born in LA and lived there for most of her life, she hopes to travel the world just enough to die somewhere else. She wishes she had a dog. She sings (decently), loves animation (fanatically), draws (poorly), colors and she writes, writes, writes. She enjoys editing film and writing dialougue. And gives decent life advice. Please Please Please hire her to do something--Something interesting. Give Me a Challenge. This is the year I break Open.
