My name is Elizabeth McGarry and I am a marketing and communications specialist living in Portland, Oregon. Stories and people have fascinated me for as long as I can remember. As a kid, I simultaneously wanted to write sketches for Saturday Night Live and drive a taxi all day.

As a fully grown, well-adjusted adult, I’ll admit it — I never stopped playing. Life is funny and should be treated as such. I write stuff about life, work, and lessons along the way.
