Melody Stone

Melody Stone I've spent the greater portion of my life trying things. This results in a wide range of interests and skills and a mastery of nothing. Which makes for great blog material. I grew up around the globe because of my parent's work - spending the 90s in Mongolia and Barbados and then part of high school in Malta. After college I scored a job as an entertainment and lifestyle editor for a local paper and did that until the paper shut down. I came to Sacramento in search of work and fell in love.
