Dennis Chen is a cautiously optimistic writer currently fighting several parking tickets in LA. He is an outspoken advocate for Family Size Doritos and a fierce critic of airline carry-on weight limits. When he’s not in the office, he spends his free time wondering if he or a loved one has recently been diagnosed with Mesothelioma and may be entitled to financial compensation. One time, he wrote an About Me page for his website entirely in the third person. He regrets it to this day. Sort of. Not enough to change it, obviously.
