I'm originally from Richmond, VA but now live in Astoria, NY with my wife who blogs and writes books about sewing and our two cats who don't contribute anywhere near as much to society.

I went to undergrad in North Carolina (studied acting) and then headed out to San Diego and got an MFA in dramatic writing.

I know how to escape from a strait jacket while suspended from the ceiling by my ankles.

If I ever have a dog I think I'd like to name him Jerry Lee Lewis.

I'm torn as to whether the coolest living human is A) Tom Waits or B) Prince.
