Why I write

When I moved to Japan from Denver last fall, I left behind some amazing friends. Monika and I were neighbors and quickly developed a close friendship for our fanatical love of dogs, design, travel, dirty chai, liquor, and zombies. Monika recently took the online plunge and launched Tails Around the Ranch, a totally rad, hilarious blog about life with Sam, the sweetest most entertaining therapy hound in Denver. The pair spends weekends visiting sick and dying people to help them cope, which they usually accomplish just by walking through a patient's door. So yeah, they’re my fucking heroes okay? Anyway, Monika invited me to finally get my super secret blog out into daylight ... and here goes. 

How does my writing differ from others in my genre? Designpunk isn't mainstream material, it's more design-meets-dark-humor-meets-punkrock and then jets to Japan. Yeah ... it's clearly not for everyone. I can be harsh. I use profanity. I don't pretend to be an expert. I also live in Japan which sort of makes me an enigma without even trying.

Why do I write? To throttle the madness. And learn new words.

How does my writing process work? I start with a simple idea and usually end up somewhere else entirely. That's probably wrong ... but hell, it keeps me entertained which is all that matters.

What I’m working on: After flunking out of ninja spy school I decided to learn something about photography. I even bought a good camera and you know that means this shit just got real.

  1. OMG, I still can't get over how totally awesome your blog is! You are definitely my hero and inspiration. When I grow up I want to be just like you, except just not in Japan [insert wry wink here]. I'd never make it.
    And I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the hair. It's really gotten long. <3
