Ugh…the media. What a disaster of a ride it’s been with them when it comes to celiac disease. From Jimmy Kimmel to Dr. Oz to Disney to the Today Show and on and on and on. Here…I do my best to take them all to task with the ultimate goal of getting people to take our disease more seriously.

January 28, 2015 | 251 Comments

This is not a rant. This is not a rave. For this post, I am using my quiet voice. Yes…I have a quiet voice. A fellow celiac notified me that NBC was running a Super Bowl ad immediately following the end of the game […]

January 21, 2015 | 104 Comments

My friends…there is no JOY in celiac-ville today. We will not be taking any JOY rides this week. The Morning Joe show is no longer my pride and JOY (not that it ever was.) I will not be singing JOY to the World any […]

Celiac Disease. It's All in Your Head.

October 13, 2014 | 56 Comments

See what I did there? I wrote the headline to make it look like celiac disease isn’t real when I’m really talking about how celiac affects the brain. This way, we’ll see if anybody reacts to just reading the headline. I know…you don’t have […]

Enough With the Gluten-Free Haters!!

July 7, 2014 | 103 Comments

I think it’s time for a good old-fashioned “Gluten Dude Take Down”. It’s been awhile and I’m a bit out of practice, but after a month of holding my tongue as the gluten-free community got mocked, doubted and trampled upon, I can hold it […]

Is Gluten-Free Luggage Funny?

April 1, 2014 | 68 Comments

Let’s say you own a small luggage company. Sales are slow…you’ve got a crappy website…you can’t seem to get anybody to follow you on Facebook and Twitter. You need a brilliant marketing strategy. Then it hits you… “I know what I’ll do!! Everyone thinks […]

Gluten Dude: The mobile app that puts your safety first!

All the tools you need for a simpler gluten-free journey, brought to you by a passionate celiac disease advocate who understands the challenges you face.

Who I am. And who I'm not.

Who I am. And who I'm not.

I AM someone who's been gluten-free since 2007 due to a diagnosis of severe celiac disease. I'm someone who can steer you in the right direction when it comes to going gluten-free. And I'm someone who will always give you the naked truth about going gluten free.

I AM NOT someone who embraces this gluten-free craziness. I didn’t find freedom, a better life or any of that other crap when I got diagnosed. With all due respect to Hunter S. Thompson, I found fear and loathing of an unknown world. But if I can share my wisdom, tell my stories and make the transition easier on you, I’ve done my job.
