Ask AC

Got a question?

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.

Seeking sanity in the midst of madness

Dear AC

I am depressed and don’t know how to stop feeling bad.  I see so much madness, sadness, suffering and pain in the world around me, but there doesn’t seem to be enough that I can do to help.

Dear AC,

I’d been unemployed for over a year when I was offered an opportunity with a company that had a vacancy that’d been open for three months.  I’ve been told that my new position had been a revolving door prior.  I found it was both a hint and a warning.

Ask AC - Family Holiday Harmony

Dear A.C.

My father passed away two years ago.  We weren’t close.   My parents divorced when I was nine, he lived out of state so we never got close.    There was no love lost between him and my mother.

Dear AC, 

My mother doesn’t understand what I’m going through.
