About Me


To conquer the world, horizontally, on a soft upholstered object.


I'm a novelist. I do a lot of travel writing and photography as well, for various magazines. I have no hair.


Four legs good, two legs bad.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Two nights on a lovely couch in Zacatecas. I'm hooked. (Updated: plus a week in Paris, hanging out with various couchsurfers. This is a brilliant concept.)


Vintage fedoras. Leicas. Italian Greyhounds.

Music, Movies, and Books

Calvino, Borges, Nabokov, Von Trier. Alt-folk, alt-country, alt-anything.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain.

Teach, Learn, Share

Well, I write and photograph professionally, and I'm a semi-professional Photoshop geek. So I can help with all of these. And if you host me, and are nice to me, I'll take your portrait.

(Oh, and I know a lot about vintage fedoras and classic cameras. Enough to give a modest seminar.)
