By day, I'm just another engineer-turned-ad-hack twisting the minds of millions of consumers for my evil corporate masters. I am responsible for America's obesity problem, rising consumer debt, the ongoing trouble in the Middle East, and the latest failed Mars mission.
(Sorry, couldn't resist.)
I do have an engineering degree. When I figured out that Dilbert was a factual guide to my new career, I escaped to the world of advertising. I live in California with my wife Lisa (another writer), eight turtles and/or tortoises, and seven cars in varying states of repair.
