You might know me from such films as "Colleen's Fourth Birthday Party" and "Colleen Falls Down Over and Over Again While Ice Skating."
I've had a rock stuck in my knee since 1986.
I eat cereal for almost every meal.
I have a huge connect-the-dots tattoo.
I am often holding graphic novels, watching Phyllis Diller films, and covered in ink.
I am a proud supporter and co-creator of Lumberjack Day. (every Sept. 26) www.lumberjackdaydotcomwastaken.com or I guess www.lumberjackday.net works as well. It was later turned into National Pancake Day and is celebrated a crazy amount by strangers who I want to hug. All of them. www.nationalpancakeday.net

I grew up in the trees of Walden, New York….well, not very high up the trees, since I always got scare

“I've always been super aware that we could all die at any moment. This ceiling could fall. I could trip and land on this pen I'm holding. I could choke on my cold pasta lunch. I could be attacked by that pigeon eying me from my window sill. I could be shot...by a stranger...who lost something in their heart. Remember death is real. It's not scary. Living is the thing to care about. Don't hold grudges. Smile and make others smile as often as possible. Don't let jerks run the world.”
