I grew up in New York. I played Little League. My favorite movie was Big Trouble In Little China. Then a bunch of stuff happened and I somehow ended up studying philosophy at Columbia University.

Over the years, I’ve been able to trick places like The New York Times, Salon, Buzzfeed,  and the New York Daily News into letting me write for them.

I wrote a memoir called The Autumn Balloon. If you’d like, you can call me and I’ll read it to you over the phone. Or you can buy it here. That would be better, actually.
