Who's Courtney Potter, you may ask?
Well, she's not the only Courtney Potter you'll find online; there's a photographer with the same name who's managed to keep the top Google result for years ... dagnabit.
This Courtney was born, raised (with a short stint in NYC for good measure), and currently lives in Los Angeles. She moved schools many times (it was oddly fun), and later graduated from UC Santa Cruz with a shiny BA in Film/Video and a whole lotta credits in Theatre. Over the years, she's worked as a Universal Studios Hollywood tour guide; at an Internet start-up; in reality TV; on the staff of a CBS sitcom; and penned on online column about television. She's pretty good at most stuff she tries ... except maybe athletics. And math. And flirting.
"A vision's just a vision if it's only in your head." - Sondheim
Some people might've heard of Courtney's dad. He did some songwriting and producing in the '70s ...
Courtney is single.

Here are some fun facts about Courtney:
+ She can play the William Tell Overture on her cheeks. (Her FACE cheeks, you perv.)
+ She was lucky enough to meet one of her lifelong heroes, Jim Henson, only 10 days before he passed away. She believes this meeting was meant to happen.
+ She once appeared on a TV game show and won. It's a good story, you should ask about it.
+ She's adept at "speaking in 3rd person."
