Personal Stories

Smile and Nod Column
I wrote a column at Gamers With Jobs for about two years called “Smile and Nod.” It was mostly about games, but often veered into such esoteric subjects as the dangers of mixing wine and cookies, and how a Christmas tree tried to kill me.


These are stories I’ve written for myself, or about myself. I find I do my best work when I’m writing about something I lived through, as opposed to merely observed.

This is one of the first stories I ever wrote.

Four Times I Saw My Father
This is a work in progress about the last four times I saw my father.

TechTV Employee Number One
The multi-part memoir of my two years as the producer and writer for The Screen Savers on TechTV, including the full text of the email I wrote on my way out the door, basically telling the entire company they could fuck themselves.
