I lost the manual when the road that I was on took several sharp turns and so now I’m here, finding things out again.

I’m Lisa Bronwyn and I don’t have all the answers.
Origins: Los Angeles, CA
Present: Silicon Valley, CA. This is the place where you see at least a dozen Teslas, Ferraris, Maseratis, and Maclarens on a daily basis. Elaborate and ridiculously expensive cars and yet we all sit in the same horrific traffic.
Past: Minneapolis, Seattle, and Portland. What can I say about these cities other than that they caused intense trauma as well as major transformations. Too much extreme weather in each of them as well, yet the friendships and bonds created are invaluable.
I’ve been on the internet for a very, very long time. I hate mayonnaise and bell peppers.
You might have blinked and missed seeing me in the background of some popular tv shows, movies, and pilots that were shot in the year 2007. Iron Man, Dexter, and House were especially fun.
I think I was once featured in the original CSI. I portrayed a florist who had a street cart where a woman is killed with a shotgun blast. All I remember are the ear plugs and the seven or so takes. The impact was massive and the stuntwoman ate it repeatedly on a large mattress.
I seem to be skilled in skin care and makeup, yet those worlds never fulfilled me, in all honesty. I’m appalled that many companies and unscrupulous people prey on one’s insecurities and pocketbook.
Claim your power and redefine the rampant consumerism that’s everywhere. Control your outcome. Vivienne Westwood said it best: “Buy less, choose well.”
My first and only major speaking gig (a pretty big one!) was at Ignite Seattle 11 in 2010. Talk about nerve wracking and intimidating. Although I wouldn’t say that I bombed drastically or anything like that, I do know that I’ll have to go in depth about it at some point.

Nowadays you can find me with my kidlet, Coco Simone, a 2 year old bundle of absolute joy who helps me to live my most authentic life. She loves shoes and cheese and will tell you about “guacamole motorcycles.”
I’ve got a motorcycle license and work in the motorcycle industry. Although I’m the first to tell you that I’m not the most experienced rider, I love vintage cafe racers, gnarly sport bikes and sport tourers. I’ll share pics that I take of neat bikes on my Instagram.
Is this a “mommy blog” at times? Maybe, but I can also tell you that I really don’t relate at all to or even think about mommy blogs, maybe with the exception of Scary Mommy and The Woman Formerly Known as Beautiful, and maybe Jenny Lawson, aka The Bloggess.
Full-time college courses fill up much of my time as I’m studying Psychology and Software Quality Assurance (SQA).
I’m a recovering cynic and will freely admit that it’s kind of tough to remain positive in my thirst for knowledge in all forms. The bs does sometimes get me down, but you know what? I persevere and try to laugh whenever I can and find the funny in most everything.
I’m glad to have had a fairly long and interesting life. It’s taken some time to come to terms with the fact that I’m glad to be who I am; I wouldn’t trade it for anything. I love my amazing friends and family.
