What I Do for a Living: I write cat humor (for real). I also co-founded a small production company and co-produced, co-wrote, and performed in a sketch comedy web series.
What I Do for Fun: Writing, word games -- especially timed ones, reading, hanging with my family, mockumentaries, making up inappropriate, alternate lyrics to songs.
The Furry Members of My Household Are: Saffy (aka Large Marge, Pickle) is a floofy grey girl, born in 2000; Cosmo (aka Young Man, Crankypants) is a shorthair tuxie boy, born in 2001; Phoebe (aka Weasel, Bunny) is a calico tabby, born in 2005.
My Favorite Things to Write About Are: Silly cat humor, offbeat short scripts, parody
My Pet Peeves Are: Auto-Tune, inconsiderate drivers, people who constantly complain yet do nothing to change their situation
My Guilty Pleasures Are: Bad reality shows, digging into a log of chocolate chip cookie dough, ABBA
How I Deal with Cat/Dog Hair: Luckily, the cat who sheds the most matches the sofa.
What I Want to Be When I Grow Up: Laughing … always.
