Jess Basser SandersLA Managing Editor
Originally from Melbourne, Australia, Jess has lived in Los Angeles for four years and is now fully assimilated. She drives everywhere, hates cold weather, and somehow even enjoys exercise. As a child, she only ate about five foods - six if you count things that come off "the barbie" as one. Obviously things have changed. She also recently educated the rest of the team on the Australian sport of "net ball" which is objectively not a sport.
