Some Things That Are True About Me
I'm a writer whose work has appeared in places such as Esquire, The Wall Street Journal, and Playboy. My first book, Can I Keep My Jersey?, was published in 2008. Booklist said it was "remarkably insightful"; an Amazon reviewer said it was "increasingly tiresome."
My second book, Stories I Tell On Dates, came out in 2017. The Chicago Tribune said it "resonates with anyone who favors introspection and emotional honesty." That book also became a podcast that is better than most podcasts.
I run Writers Blok, a co-writing space in Los Angeles. We function like a yoga studio or a gym, except for writing.
I also sometimes do speaking engagements for businesses and college groups about what I've learned about failure and adapting to it.
