I'm a regular contributor to McSweeney's and The New Yorker.

I run the humor site Slackjaw, on Medium.

I also have a site about funny writing, Hyoom, where I interview awesome writers.

I enjoy writing on topics ranging from unusual desserts to hilarious panopticons, and everything in between. But what’s in between!?
