Airline Snack photo by Brandi SimsSo you fly a lot, as I do, and you have successfully navigated eleven countries, all fifty states and the realization that "just because it's free does not mean I'm hungry," saving your already time-zone interrupted, altitudinally exposed and frequent-flier seat-restricted digestive tract from thousands of roasted peanuts, cheesy goldfish and unidentifiable thrice-heated meals. Then you are off to a good start as far as staying healthy as you trot around the globe. Read on…

Bottled Raw Kombucha photo by Mikey SklarAs promised, I'm going to tell you how to make kombucha, but not just any kombucha. Here’s my top-secret, uber-economical, super-green and wildly delicious raw kombucha recipe developed over years of toil and research (aka: learning to get out of nature's way). To start your own home raw kombucha fermentation project, I recommend first doing three successful test runs on cane sugar.

Wine Bottles by ShodanSome select the foods they eat solely on the basis of taste. Some are trying to affect their body's health or shape. Others make food choices based purely on convenience. Children often don’t get to choose at all; they eat what they are given by the adults in their lives. The reasons for food selection are as numerous as the stars in the sky. One thing is certain: to those of us living in the United States, at least, it usually is a choice. Read on…

As soon as I switched to a Mac computer, I became a media mogul. I joke to myself sometimes that "I was born content"—in other words, I was born with an adventurous spirit, a desire to communicate and the talent to entertain. With such user-friendly creative tools on the computer nowadays, nothing holds me back from sharing the entertaining and hopefully thought-provoking content that is my life. Read on...

Scary Snowman photo by Britta BohlingerWhoa, what has happened to my world in the last three weeks? Just when I thought Los Angeles traffic couldn't get more ridiculous, parking structures more cumbersome, or drivers grumpier and less safe, the holiday season began.

I'm driving to an audition, which is a usual part of my day, and suddenly there are three cars in front of me making dangerously bad moves and screaming out their windows about who is 'right'—like children... like jerks.
