About Kendall and Corey
Kendall’s people skills and smarts make him one of those rare human resources experts that people actually like to talk to. While HR makes up Kendall’s M-F life, one of his greatest passions and pleasures are animals. He and Corey parent 5 dogs and 3 cats. Mr. Furley (a Chihuahua-Papillon rescue) is his favorite.
Philanthropy is another of Kendall’s passions, specifically LGBTQ+ rights. He’s been active with the Human Rights Campaign and was a board member of the Rainbow Honor Walk in San Francisco.
Defying his Southern Baptist upbringing, Kendall loves to dance – and damn, he’s good! He and Corey have a shared love of drag culture and horror movies.
Corey knew from age 5 he wanted to be a writer; his professional writing career started in 1997. He’s the author of two books, the bestselling “The Union of The State,” about the famed comedy troupe, The State, and “Laugh Lines,” featuring interviews with legendary comedians.
While entertainment journalism has been the backbone of Corey’s writing career, he’s also produced content for a variety of industries on a myriad of subjects. He prides himself on his interviewing skills.
He was almost a life-long St. Louisan, but that changed when he and Kendall moved their brood to the San Francisco Bay Area in 2008, and then all the way across the country to New England in 2018.
