I can:

  • Knit, crochet, & macrame

  • Eat fire, lay on a bed of nails and read your Tarot

  • Say the alphabet backwards faster than forwards

  • Make a perfect chocolate cake from scratch

  • Get stains out of damn near anything

  • Recite Green Eggs and Ham, the Jabberwocky, and Roy Batty’s “tears in rain” speech

I am:

  • A terrible but enthusiastic fencer

  • Pretty good on a horse (hunter/jumper).

In the early 90s, I played two characters in an epic 2-year campaign of the RPG Cyberpunk 2020. I took the surname of one from the first family murdered in Michael Mann's MANHUNTER; the second was for the circus family in my favorite novel, Katherine Dunn's GEEK LOVE.


In the mid 2000s, I had a food blog (RIP) called ROOT. I gave myself the title of Ravenous Scrivener, and we had the best logo ever.
