Who Am I

I’m a life coach, writer, speaker, poet and all sorts of other things. My nickname, Zigzag, went viral in 2003. 

I zig and I zag.  Sometimes I wiggle.

Education and Training

I’ve been a teacher, speaker, spoken word poet, writer and life coach for most of my life. I received my BA in writing at New York University and my MFA in writing at Easter Washington University. I also received my solution-focused life coaching certification at Erickson College.  

I am a fanatic about learning how people tick. 

I’ve studied relationships, dating, communication and sex for over two decades through experiences, formal education, reading a ton of books and talking to hundreds of people on these subjects including strangers, colleagues, and friends. 

I started a weekly thread on my facebook page called “Ask Me Anything Fridays”. It became popular and was a lot of fun.  

A good friend started an acronym WWZD: “What Would Zigzag Do?” So I started this advice-column-blog.

Now you can ask me anything  – any time.
