Born: Washington, DC
Raised: Rockville, MD
Currently reside: Brooklyn, NY
I am an artist: I write and I perform, and when I don't, I get pissy and/or filled with existential despair.
Dream jobs: Syndicated national columnist. Writer for an HBO or IFC show. Yoga teacher by the sea.
Job I definitely don't want: Politician. Blech.
You might be surprised to learn: I dropped out of college. I went back, but only after I figured out how to get an education that meant something to me. I ended up graduating Phi Beta Kappa from the University of Pennsylvania. Also, I've seen Family Ties European Vacation a gajillion times (that's a precise count).
Words to live by: "Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive." -Howard Thurman
