Dennis Chen is an advertising copywriter currently being overcharged for rent in Los Angeles. He is a staunch advocate for more snacks and less snakes. When he’s not saving puppies from burning buildings or helping grandmothers cross the street, he’s fabricating heroic stories about himself. One time, he wrote an About Me section entirely in the third person. He regrets it to this day.
