Hey there! I’m on the plane to Dragon Con as I type this. Dragon Con is by far my favorite Con. The cosplay, the entertainment, the awesome nerds and the amazing partying that goes down at Dragon Con always sates me for the year ahead. It is incomparable to any other event!

This is my fifth straight year heading out to Atlanta, Georgia. It’s my fourth straight year presenting the hit show 5 Truths and a Lie. Each year the 5TL panel gets better – it’s now Standing Room Only, so if y0u plan to go then you need to get in line early!

It’s also my second year guesting on panels mainly in the podcast track. These panels range from the current state of podcasting, to comedy in podcasts, to doing a live Booze and Phasers recording! This year, I’m on seven panels, two of which I’m hosting.

Please check out my detailed schedule below or the quick one above and stop by to say hello. If you miss me on the panels then you’ll be sure to find me at the Hilton Karaoke every night!
