Ryan La Sala was born and raised in Connecticut, but only in the physical sense. He spent most of his childhood mentally immersed in the universes of Sailor Moon and Xena: Warrior Princess, which may explain his twirling. Before becoming a project manager specializing in digital tools, he studied Anthropology and Neuroscience at Northeastern University. He technically resides in New York City, but he has transcended material reality and only inhabits a human shell on rare occasions, such as brunch and to watch anime (which is prohibited on the astral world). Reverie and Be Dazzled are his books. Ryan LaSala's website is ryanlasala.com.
