I am a comedian, performance artist and writer because a career counselor once told me I would never be able to hang onto a straight job.
Waaaaay too many pets live with me. I have 10 cats, 4 dogs, 4 birds, 1 fish, 1 rabbit and 2 lizards. Some of these pets are already dead; they reside in Tupperware in the back closet. The remainder reside right in the middle of my bed. Tomorrow I hope to get 2 more dogs.
If you meet me in person, you will think, "Hmm...gorgeous. Nuts. And a pain in the butt."
I'm the writer of:
Background: I've been fired from 79 jobs. The stories I've lived in these weird and wonderful jobs--machinist, actor, filmmaker, software engineer, acting coach, executive management consultant, film festival director, envelope stuffer, chicken plucker, stripper, pothole counter, necktie folder, reporter, cookie packer, tool & die maker, life coach, comedy traffic school instructor--found themselves expressed in nasty poems and sad comedy routines with elements of insanity.
Oh, yes, and slasher screenplays--a few of which are in discussions to be acquired by film producers. Yay!

The world is in a big, fucking mess and I'm writing snotty haiku about it.
Cranky, grouchy, snotty and mean haiku.
