A: J.D. and Kate are married (to each other) and live in St. Louis, Missouri, where they moved to pursue the American dream of finding excitement, adventure and opportunity in the untamed west, like Daniel Boone, or Alfred Packer.
J.D. has worked as a federal lobbyist, a congressional staffer, an analyst at a private intelligence company, and a crisis PR flack. Here is his LinkedIn profile, which features the most attractive photo ever taken of him by a wide margin.
Kate is a former assistant comics editor for a national newspaper syndicate. Previously, she was head writer for the humor magazine at Brown University, which is a private liberal arts college in New England.
