At a St. Patrick’s Day party a couple of years ago, my brother’s best friend berated him for having "NPA" disease. NPA = Not Paying Attention.

My brother just smiled and raised his glass in a silent toast, which made us all instantly understand that he hadn’t heard a wo...

I ended my summer Fringe Tour in San Francisco, where I not only got to perform for a lot of people, but I also got to spend time with some of my favorite friends and drink everyone’s weight in wine. While this was all super fun and remains at the top of my “I Regret N...

There was a “green room” in the theater at the San Francisco Fringe Festival.  It was open to anyone who wanted to hang out there, but it was really a place for the artists, volunteers and staff to kick back, grab a snack, and shoot the shit. I flitted in and out, most...

I’ve been keeping this list.

I call it “The Big List of Trying.”

It started as a reflection about my life as I near the half century mark. I guess I'm trying to quantify the sheer number of weird, wild, and whimsical experiences I’ve collected. I was curious about what's...

I’ve been traveling around with my show, meeting new people, and sometimes getting reacquainted with old friends. The thing I hear most often from those old friends is “You’re EXACTLY the same as I remember you! You haven’t changed a bit!” 

My internal gut response is: ...

This summer has been a whirlwind of travel, performance, and day-job drama. I’ve been on 33 flights this year and, if I’m being conservative, there are about half a dozen more to come. I’m full of Airport Candy (SM) and my body feels like I’ve been sleeping in a wheelb...

I love the start of a new month. It fills me with hope. New notebooks, promises of getting back on the wagon with workouts, meditation, productivity, [insert your thing here.] There’s an inherent clean slate, fresh start feeling in a new month —  a SuperMonday, a New Y...

I love to travel, but I’m an unenthusiastic travel planner. I’m that asshole who lets my travel buddies do the research while I show up with Venmo and a smile. From my perspective, this is a great thing. People who love to plan travel get to do what they love to do and...

One of my big commitments this summer is taking my solo show, That’s Not How It Happened, on the road. In January, I applied to 4 Fringe Festivals and, much to my surprise, got accepted into all of them. 

Now, I’m managing myself through 4 different festivals in 2 count...

I've always had a rocky relationship with my singing voice. As a kid, I’d sing with my Dad at the bar, happily oblivious to my clearly sub-par vocal range. (Get it together, 5-year old, Colleen!). 

Dad was a classically trained opera singer, and his voice was incre...
