Michael Lang Born and raised in the mid-west; where time moves slowly and the people seem more genuine, I can appreciate the hustle and bustle of L.A. while admiring the Hollywood stars. I moved to L.A. to get a better education, found Pasadena Community Collage then transferred to Cal Poly Pomona.
