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

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!

A Terribly Silly Poem...And a Follow-Up

Hannah Montana could play in Havana
And I wouldn't care one iota.
Nor would I much blink if she ate a live mink
Or she changed her last name to Dakota.

Hannah Montana could burn down Savannah
With all of her fans! That'd show 'em!
...But if Hannah Montana's last name was "Banana,"
I still might have written this poem.

[LATER: a follow-up poem:]

The fact that Miss Montana is the sole
Best-selling concert ticket in our nation
Says less about the state of rock and roll
And more about her market penetration.

market penetration
is less association -
it's all about the glamor and faux
a blonde haired girl is able
to simply fake a fable -
consequetly we lose our soul.

yeah, watch out for the new album this spring!
