What’s An Aranya?
Aranya Tomseth is a half-Thai, half-Oregonian/Norwegian Foreign Service brat who has been blessed with the incredible good fortune to live and travel all over the world her whole life. Contrary to popular belief, she is not Hispanic, nor is she Native American (although either of those options would be totally cool). And yes, she is indeed aware that her name means spider in Spanish, but no, that still doesn’t make her Hispanic.
Aranya is a writer, an editor, a journalist, a bookworm, a music freak, a movie buff, a lover of all things nerdy, an Interwebz junkie, a tech fiend, a magazine addict, a food enthusiast, a former bartender (and subsequently, somewhat of a liquor snob), a dog fanatic, a pop culture aficionado, a sucker for things that go really, really fast, a world traveler and, much to her mother’s dismay, a bit of a potty-mouth.
P.S. Believe it or not, Aranya is gainfully employed and has a full-time, totally legit job that she goes to everyday. She’s a writer, editor and social media flunkie for Playboy, Playboy.com and Playboy’s safe-for-work site The Smoking Jacket.
