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!

Exchange From a Short Play I Should Write Someday

STEVE and JAMAL are in Steve's apartment. Jamal is waiting for Steve to collect his things. As he does so, he looks around.

JAMAL: You've got a sock on the floor and a t-shirt on the couch.


JAMAL: So you should clean it up.

STEVE: Oh, that. I keep wanting to, but then I think, "If I wait, maybe someone else will do it."

JAMAL: But don't you live alone?

STEVE: Yeah, but I keep the door unlocked.
