Three words to describe Cortney:
chameleon, nerd, great laugh! (Ok, admittedly that's four words, but who cares it's her website.)
She reads comic books, reads & watches sci-fi (loves, loves, loves Game of Thrones), kicks butt on You Don't Know Jack video game.
Chameleon because well... it's all about the hair. Short, long, curly, afro allows for a wide age range. Also it's just plain fun being different every day!
And friends tell me that hearing me laugh makes comedies even funnier (go figure).
