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

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!

Life and Music

I don't recall whether I've posted this before, but it's a lovely meditation--spoken by Alan Watts, animated by South Park's Trey Parker and Matt Stone--that seems like the sort of thing I'd like to be able to do with my own book, as a sort of viral-video way of getting the word out. (I'd even happily illustrate it myself, if someone else could do the animation. Is there Craigslist in Korea?) The only problem: this is a two-minute piece, which means it's only about 250 words. I can't think of a thing I've written that's quite that pithy. Maybe the Sunday School lesson about Adam and Eve? Maybe the Grinch discussion?

Anyway, here's "Life and Music," and it's great. Enjoy.




[thanks to my friend Charlene, who reminded me of this.]
