karineh mahdessian learned english by reading nancy drew books and watching married with children.  she has a great affinity for really large earrings. she enjoys tacos from highland park taco trucks.  she will challenge anyone to a thumbwrestling match. anytime.  anyplace.   she always has her chess set riding around in the trunk of her car.  and she is absolutely in love with haikus.

David Kukoff is a Los Angeles native who has been writing for film and television since 1991.  His highlights include writing a movie for a post-'N Sync/pre-"Social Network" Justin Timberlake and selling a major spec script about anorexic Valley Girls who undergo a radical diet treatment and emerge as flesh-eating zombies.  Following a wonderful four-year stint teaching film and television writing at Northwestern University in Chicago, he is back on the West Coast full-time where he is working on a book of short stories-slash-novel about growing up in 1970's Los Angeles.
