Los Angeles, California - United States

Danielle is a Bay Area native, currently living as a double agent across enemy lines in Southern California. After studying History and English at UC Berkeley, she worked in a law office, assisting with cases about high-heeled fighting strippers and a hooker who used her prosthetic leg to beat a John.
