AC is an East Coast transplant who became rooted in the SFV. “Yup”, AC said “I found a place in North Hollywood years ago, and though I’ve traveled the world over this is the place I call home. Well, also Massachusetts because that’s where I was born. I think of Hawaii as my second home, but I don’t own property there so maybe I can’t count that. I was going to say Paris, at first cause I am very comfortable there, but then, you know I’m American and I don’t want to be too pompous. So, yeah, I guess the San Fernando Valley is home.”
A street scholar, majoring in hard knocks and common sense, AC, attended night school receiving a high school diploma. With a thirst for knowledge, AC continued education included many, many on line courses and seminars from selling beets at your local farmers market and how to shuck clams to Introduction to wine.
AC has been offering advice to everyone, whether they ask for it or not. At times AC’s advice has been met with animosity and physical threats. None the less AC preservers. “It’s my calling” says AC, who urges readers to send in their confounding queries; “If you want advice (in the words of the 45th President), ‘what do you have to lose’, Ask AC?”
What makes AC’s columns unique is that it feels like you are getting advice from a friend, a person you can rely on for lively, no-nonsense feedback. Ask AC is the best advice columnist by a Los Angeles mile."
AC resides in North Hollywood has two children, is an animal lover and has an active social life. An adventure sport enthusiast, writer, performer, corporate baby, and community volunteer. AC devotes time to family, community and in the service of others.
