I'm a Brooklyn-based freelance writer and author with a background in copywriting for media outlets such as America Online as well as marketing/ ad agencies and small firms. My work has appeared in dozens of national publications including National Lampoon, Skeptic, The Onion A.V. Club, McSweeney's, as well as regional and trade publications like Austin Monthly, Club Systems International, Dining Out, Destination Dallas, and Pizza Today (yes, Pizza Today). My first book, Flock of Dodos: Behind Modern Creationism, Intelligent Design, and the Easter Bunny was released in 2007 to praise from Matt Taibbi of Rolling Stone, Alan Dershowitz of Harvard Law School, Cenk Uyger of Air America Radio, Bob Cesca of The Huffington Post, and other sources. I've also done a bit of work in television.
