My friends call me Taffy

I can eat fire, I'm 5'1" and 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 could be found designing and making costumes for arty strippers, drag luminaries, and circus folk. Previously, I have worked as 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 write things that are true, mostly short-ish, and

. and am currently working on a podcast that explores my various obsessions.
