Wren Schultz is a juggler, housesitter, web developer, and Division E ACPT competitor who calls Anacortes, Washington home. In his spare time (which, being a professional housesitter, there is plenty of), he likes doing and making crosswords, and even turned his car into a crossword-mobile, complete with customizable magnetic grid and tiny magnetic refrigerator letters. When not "working", Wren likes to travel the globe to anywhere there is cheap street food. Tacos and coconut ice cream are his favorite. But not together. That'd be gross. You may have recently seen Wren on Wheel of Fortune where he won enough to fund his I-don't-wanna-grow-up lifestyle for just a little longer.
