About

My Story

One winter Al Franken came to do stand-up in my small town. Afterwards I stood in line to ask him for advice. He left me with one thought, "Ass in the chair." Al went on to explain that lots of people get ideas, but very few have the stomach to sit their ass down and see them through.

I haven't left my seat since.
