Taffeta V.
Writer, Podcaster, Master of Disguise

I can eat fire, I have a WNBA championship ring with my name right there on it, and one time I won a gold medal at the Seattle Burlesque Olympics.

Most recently, I worked designing and making costumes for arty strippers, drag luminaries, and circus folk. Previously, I have been a public relations goon for a big musical theatre, an event manager for bookstores, and a private chef for a secret society. Plus a lot of other stuff.

This qualifies me to be an excellent cocktail party guest. And, you know, a writer.

I tell mostly-true stories, and am currently working on a podcast exploring my short term obsessions.

I grew up in the Midwest, so I have a great work ethic, say “OPE” all the time, and will make you a casserole if you are sad.

I spent my adult life in Seattle - I love the weather (yes, it rains; no, I won’t carry an umbrella), the coffee, and the landscape. It is my happy place.

In 2018, my husband was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, so we moved back to his hometown of Toledo, Ohio.
