The adventures of an urbane bar-hopping transplant to New York.

My Photo
Location: New York, New York, United States

I'm a storyteller in the New York area who is a regular on NPR's "This American Life" and at shows around the city. Moved to New York in 2006 and am working on selling a memoir of my years as a greeting card writer, and (as a personal, noncommercial obsession) a nonfiction book called "How to Love God Without Being a Jerk." My agent is Adam Chromy at Artists and Artisans. If you came here after hearing about my book on "This American Life" and Googling my name, the "How to Love God" book itself isn't in print yet, and may not even see print in its current form (I'm focusing on humorous memoir), but here's a sample I've posted in case you're curious anyway: Sample How To Love God Introduction, Pt. 1 of 3. Or just look through the archives for September 18, 2007.) The book you should be expecting is the greeting card book, about which more information is pending. Keep checking back!

Look at the Pretty Birdie!

To distract myself from the depressing helplessness of the last post, I've decided to make good on my earlier promise and post a second picture, so that way I can truthfully assert that my site contains "pictures." This photo, taken at the Fountain of Youth state park in St. Augustine, Florida, is probably the highest-quality photo my old camera-phone ever took.

The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

...And what the hell. Here's a picture of one of those giant pots called "tinajones." Know anybody named Tina Jones? That's another peacock in the tree, but compared to the albino one above, this peacock is for shit.

The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

By the way, that's not my thumb in either photo. The leather casing for my phone had a tendency to pucker right near the lens.
