about me


I write moderately about the best way to arrange the time before death. Frequently this writing is funny, though that's usually incidental. Due to popular demand, I have honed a few rudimentary reporting techniques and can now skate by as a serious journalist. In any case, I try to do work that entertains people and makes them feel calm and smart.
