about me

Dennis Chen is an employed copywriter and alleged humor writer dwelling in Los Angeles. He is a staunch advocate for more snacks and less snakes. If he were to win the lottery tomorrow, the first thing he would do is immediately contact the authorities because it is almost certainly a scam.
