My self-summary
I'm a writer and humorist. You may have heard me on public radio, talking about my career writing greeting cards or my experiences as an ex-fundamentalist.

Bad news: I'm allergic to cats. I have lived with them surprisingly often, but we will never be easy friends.
What I’m doing with my life
After a career with a lot of high-profile elements (Hallmark cards, This American Life, Hollywood game shows, freelancing in New York and L.A.), I got tired of scrambling for cash and recently moved back to Tallahassee (home of my doctorate), where I hope to find a simple day job and write my own stuff on the side.
I’m really good at
Seeing the bright side of everything. It's almost ridiculous. Greeting card habit, I guess.
The first things people usually notice about me
My shiny bald head.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm a lit geek, an old movie geek, and a fan of all the music no one listens to (including alt country, underground hip-hop, and experimental ambient).

Foodwise, I'm deathly allergic to nuts, and have reacted badly to seafood in the past. I am therefore totally unadventurous when it comes to restaurants. I wish it weren't so, but hey—at least I'm still alive.
The six things I could never do without
I have always hated this useless question.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Culture, religion, jokes—everything, really. Helps with the essays.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either writing at All Saints or club-hopping in the Water Works/Wine Loft area.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm colorblind and you can sometimes tell this from my clothing.
You should message me if
You're a fan of, or participate in, burlesque, roller derby , female-led rock bands, belly dancing, and/or political satire. (I'm also a sucker for writers, librarians, linguists, and other brainy misfits.) I believe that all fundamentalism is grounded in contempt for human frailty. So don't be the kind of person who thinks everyone is stupid. I like women who don't mind being hugged and touched and who can see the upside to a bad day--even if this optimism is technically unrealistic. :)
