About Me

I've been writing articles and blog posts for more than 15 years on topics including law, self-help, and personal finance. I had an entertainment blog that was consistently in the top five in the Google search results, and at its peak was #1 out of a total of 66,499,997 results. I've also written funny greeting cards for American Greetings and crossword puzzles for the New York Times, Simon & Schuster, and many other outlets. I have a B.A. in Psychology from UC Berkeley, an M.A. in Creative Writing/English from SF State, and a J.D. from UC Hastings College of the Law.
