Standup/story video about nightmare NYC apt. hunt

I'm a standup and storyteller in NYC, and you may have heard my stuff on 'The Moth' podcast or 'This American Life.' I just got some good video of a new story that I'm really proud of and I'm showing it off here.

It's about a NIGHTMARE apartment hunt in NYC and a chance encounter with Ryan Gosling.

Brooklyn Cartografix

I'm working on a project in which I use maps of Brooklyn as the basis of t-shirt designs. My current shirts feature walking paths of Prospect Park and Green-Wood Cemetery, the Gowanus Canal and Newtown Creek, and the Coney Island Rail Yard. There'll be a bunch more to come. Oh, and all proceeds will be donated to various relevant nonprofits.

Same Rat, Different Hat

The debut record from Out of System Transfer, a neo-old-timey band who sing punk-influenced folk songs about the assassination of William McKinley, hitting cops in the head with a brick, and riding the subway. Their sound has been compared to the Holy Modal Rounders, Mojo Nixon, and Mischief Brew. With physical media sales becoming less viable, it made little sense to get CDs printed (plus, no one in the band even had a working CD player), but it also felt wrong to forego the great potential offered by album covers and liner notes, not to mention the feeling of having a tangible thing for fans to have. Thus, the record was released as a zine, (also bundled with the download as a pdf) with original artwork commissioned for each song by various Brooklyn-based artists. [more inside]

My dog poses on various stumps and fallen logs in Prospect Park, Brooklyn. Ever since Hurricane Sandy, there has been a nearly inexhaustible supply of new dog pedestals! Ongoing photo project.

NYC Advent-ure: 24 days of holiday fun in New York City

NYC Advent-ure is a virtual advent calendar of holiday events in NYC. Events are ordered from most to least time sensitive to make planning easier. I thought of it only a few days before December 1st, so this is a minimum viable product, as they say. I'll be rolling out updates and fixes (development, design, and content) during the month. I hope for it to continue next year and plan on setting something up so people in other cities can create their own calendars.
