I like to get my hands dirty. 

And I'll try almost anything. It's why I started out in journalism, before working in brand management, before realizing my truest calling—copywriting (and joke-writing, and food-styling, and drink-making, and troublemaking). 

When I’m not creating, I spend a lot of time sitting in LA traffic and maniacally laughing in disbelief, like a Disney movie villain.
