Lisa Montagne, Ed.D.

Publisher | Editor-in-Chief

Lisa6-13Although said to be a direct descendent of Oompa Loompas, Lisa is actually the offspring of a college professor and a circus dwarf. After toiling over thousands of student papers in her job as a university English lecturer, she decided, in a mad fit of revenge, that she wanted to inflict her writing on other people instead—hence, this website. The fancy letters after her name are real, but you shouldn’t believe anything else she says.

You can find her blog, “Talking Out of My Pie Hole,” at lisamontagne.com.

Staff Writer

JoeJanickiIf Joe is not on his college’s campus, working at an office  in San Clemente as an IT Broker, or halfway across the planet blowing all of his money that he just saved for a year with his German best friend, he is here at Archive 405 putting all of his strange, yet oddly realistic, thoughts on paper. As a new recruit to Archive 405, in 2014 Joe will be enlightening us with musings on his personal interests—by person interests, he means stupid shit that you shouldn’t have to think about, but may become relevant to your life someday.
