About Me


Around America in 30 days!!!


At this point in my life I'm pretty comfortable in my skin, I can't imagine wearing anything else. Maybe scales. My life is a series of finding excuses to wear my leather pants, getting lost on my way to Costco, riding my motorcycle, Writing, Swimming, whiskey frappacino's--the Doogle McStarship, my specialty, thinking up tattoo ideas (and getting the worst ones), staying loyal to the loyal, Sending Weird Emails past Midnight, finding Girls with Smile Wrinkles, eternally seeking Adventures that End in rashes, and gradually realizing that this may be the best night of my life.


Merrily Merrily Merrily Merrily

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

When I was 12, I went crocodile hunting in a small canoe along the Amazon with a tribesman who was killed three years later under questionable circumstances. That story started me writing.

Teach, Learn, Share

When a cab driver in San Francisco tells you to not joke about the glass dolphin hanging from his rear view mirror--listen. It might save you a long walk.
