Dennis Chen is a copywriter and legitimate bitcoin businessman based in Los Angeles. By day, he writes copy for Taco Bell at Deutsch Advertising Agency. By other days and sometimes nights if he can stay awake, he is a willing participant in sketch comedy, improv, photography, and hip hop dance. 

If there's one thing you should know, it's that nothing makes Dennis happier than being buried beneath a heaping pile of snacks -- NOT SNAKES. It's weird that this needs to be clarified, but it is shocking how often his birthday is ruined by a den of falling snakes.
