i write for:
the new yorker,
the awl, mcsweeney's,
death and taxes, witstream,
thought catalog, funny or die, armchair/shotgun, bygone bureau.

i once sent weird postcards,
wrote witstream promos, made a supercut of guy fieri eating, scalped kraftwerk tickets, took the pranks out of jackass, live-tweeted a divorce, worked on louie, made a pinterest, text messaged a stranger, and became an official crowd amper for the Chicago Desire bikini basketball team.
i write jokes on twitter:

“So for my latest Awl round-up, I asked people what books made them cringe now. There’s a lot of On the Road, Ayn Rand, and Raymond Carver.”
I love this.
Such a wealth of information in this box!
I feel like I’ve been waiting for this blog my entire life. I would have called it “Park Slobs,” however. See what I did there?
