Jeff Wilser

So I'm actually nomadic. I sold all my stuff and I'm now traveling the world, hopping from one country to the next, indefinitely. Yet I'm 100% able to collaborate with US-based clients, wherever you are.

Work Samples

General

(New York Magazine - The Cut 6/18/2013)
Piece that went viral for The Cut. Years later, still in heavy rotation on the site...
(Crown Publishing (Random House) 9/18/2017)
A mix of history, humor, and pop culture about America's favorite Founding Father...
(Flatiron (Macmillan Publishers) 12/8/2015)
A mix of health and humor, it was named by Amazon as a "Best Book of the Month" in both humor and non-fiction.
(Crown Publishing (Random House) 10/5/2017)
The aviators. The Obama bromance. The ice cream cones. It's all there: the first pop biography of America's favorite Vice President.
(Condé Nast Traveler 9/10/2016)
In the name of research, I traveled to the Caribbean to follow in the footsteps of Alexander Hamilton. (A tough gig.)
(HarperCollins 5/1/2011)
Clearly the most substantive book published in 2011. A best-seller in Amazon's Interior Design... briefly beating out Martha Stewart, who still hasn't sent me a Christmas card.
