My self-summary
Five Fun Facts About Me

1. I love alliteration in small doses (see "Five Fun Facts About Me")

2. In 2014, I married two of my friends as their officiant without being ordained or even religious.

3. I once holed up in a skeezy motel in the 'hoods of Los Angeles the night before my flight home, stared a gang member right in the face....and lived to tell the Hollywood agent I met the next day about it over drinks.

4. I know the difference between "there", "their", and "they're". (I know: crazy, right?!)

5. I have flown airplanes, written books, and starred in precisely one commercial for 3 seconds (blink and you'll miss me!)
What I’m doing with my life
As of April 2015?

I'm an author and a ghostwriter, currently building my own badass crew of writers, editors, marketers, and designers.

I'm reading "Die Wise" by Stephen Jenkinson, a former palliative care counselor who may be the most gifted wordsmith the English language has ever seen.

And as I'm writing this, I'm figuring out ways to keep my dog entertained in a way that doesn't involve having my other slipper chewed to pieces.
I’m really good at
Punnery and Deadpan
Culinary innovation
Gift-wrapping (no, seriously)
Oil and tire changes
Scribbling
Trivia
Speed reading
Feel-gooding (yes, I just made that up).
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm told by reliable sources that it's my smile. Less reputable ones have cited my eyebrows.

FOOD SAMPLER (that's right, I said it!)
