My self-summary
I'm a writer, editor and columnist living in Los Angeles. Thousands of people in my town are funny for a living. I'm one of them. I carry a notepad.

An advocate of the Action-Adventure Life, I believe existence should be anything but sedentary and normal. This philosophy makes life hair-raising at times, but never dull.

I do comedy, not drama.

I'm writing a novel set in Los Angeles. What fun!

I don't drink, alkies bore me, and I don't do bars so don't ask to meet in one.

"Abandon hopelessness, all ye who enter here." -G.K. Chesterton

"The wild boys smile" -William Burroughs

"Damn everything but the circus" -e.e. cummings

"To be cool is to believe. To stay cool is to have the sweet fragments of serenity rock your wig away." -Lord Buckley

I am antic, puckish, and gonzo
What I’m doing with my life
La vie littéraire, or doing to L.A. what Boswell did to Johnson.
I’m really good at
Writing, listening, cooking, dancing, having fun.
The first things people usually notice about me
1) huge blue eyes
2) pale hair
3) ready-kilowatt smile
4) giggle
5) The invisible DJ playing "Tom Sawyer" by Rush when I walk into a room...
