I'm a writer and humorist. You may have heard me on public
Bad news: I'm allergic to cats. I have sometimes lived with them,

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm an author and a regular contributor to "This American Life" and
other public radio shows. I'm currently hosting a videoblog called
"Greeting Card Emergency."
I have a semiregular gig as a game show writer, and this affords me
just enough to live on. So when I'm not actively employed in LA, I

, roller derby
, female-led rock
bands, belly dancing, and/or political satire. (I'm also a sucker
