Professional Experience

Discovering the secrets of the Tower of London for National Geographic Kids. Spinning extravagant tales for the J. Peterman Catalog. Hustling to meet the deadlines of a harried creative department. As a seasoned writer across a variety of mediums, each new assignment is a new adventure. That's why I pride myself on having been labeled an ad man, a pop culture guru, a humorist, a children's feature writer, a sports radio host, a PR guy, and an essayist. I embrace each label, because each contributes to the massive pool of varied experience I've created over the last ten years. From devising national ad campaigns to deciphering tax laws for the layperson, from penning a sitcom pilot to detailing the most peculiar foods around the world -- each journey brings a new story. The greatest writing comes from the greatest stories. My greatest thrill has always been - and will always remain - that there are still so many stories to tell.
