Q: How do you say your name?
A: Uh-LAY-nuh Muh-BAH-so.

A: Toads. Theater. Helicopters. Astronauts. Non-profits. Town halls. Painters. Mental health. Venture capital. Politics. Social justice. You name it.

Q: Do you ever think about getting a real job?

Q: Are you available for writing assignments or projects, or just generally to hear the thoughts I'm afraid to leave in a public comment?
A: You can reach me through this website's contact form.
