Eliza Gibson

Writer and Performer


Meet Eliza: divorced with an ex-wife she couldn’t legally marry and cross-country co-custody of their 72 pound dog. Her search for a way to breathe again takes her from indoor sky diving to drill team tryouts, to making fish flashcards and yes, to losing her favorite flip flops.
