I dated a guy so commitment phobic I wrote a book about our relatable, humorous, and emotionally draining relationship - DANGLED CARAT I have an unhealthy addiction to denim and shoes. I love to find humor in every day life. And I liken life to a game of dodgeball - I try to keep many balls in the air before they smack me in the face. When I am not writing or blogging I am the CFO of a beverage alcohol importer. I live on Long Island.
