Adapted Disney-Pixar Film to Book

I attended a special screening of the new Disney-Pixar film, Coco, on the actual Disney lot, with the film's director, all so I could adapt it to this interactive photo book!

Film Writer for The Lure

The Criterion Collection invited me to write the DVD insert for one of my most favorite films of all time, insisting that we were "a perfect fit." Buy the Criterion's DVD of this Polish horror vampire mermaid musical by Agnieszka Smoczynska, and feast your eyes on my sassy essay!

Film Writer for Stopping Traffic

The creator of this phenomenal documentary (who just happens to be a female monk) reached out to me for a film review and press release. It was an honor to work on such a noble project.

Comedian at Huffpost

My satirical tweet got a lot of attention that week thanks to The Huffington Post, alongside tweets from Lena Dunham and Anna Kendrick.

1st Place Winner of The Moth

The theme of this world-famous storytelling event was "Scandals." I won with my comedic story about unwittingly sleeping with a B movie star Scientologist. I went on to compete in The Moth's StorySlam competition, hosted by Andy Borowitz from The New Yorker. (The Moth has its own radio show/podcast and is often featured on NPR's This American Life.)

Literary Death Match Judge

My short fiction, A Cinderella Story, was the favorite of the judges and audience.

Film Critic at Edge

Storyteller and Performer: Mortified

Like grape juice turned to fine wine, my earliest writing started out so bad that it's now good. I perform my teenage diaries onstage regularly with Mortified in New York City and Los Angeles. My long list of gay boyfriends was so special that it made their podcast (Episode 60 if you're into tales of heartache that lead to BFFing).

Scriptwriter at The New York Post

The New York Post contracted me to write comedic scripts about celebrity real estate opportunities for their website, so I rebooted Lifestyles of The Rich and Famous.

Okay, so I haven't written for The New York Times. But I have been mentioned in it. Twice. The first time they took my picture when I won "Best Director" for a play I wrote and directed at The Riant Theatre's One-Act Festival in Manhattan. The second time they took my picture was when I floated naked in a woman-sized aquarium at a SoHo art opening. (The latter has served as excellent fodder in an essay I've sold several times called Never Judge An Artist By Her Vagina Dress Or Lack Thereof.)

Writer, Director, Performer

Famous for burlesque and its appearance in dozens of shows and films (including Mad Men), NYC's The Slipper Room hosted a summer series called Red Light Nights featuring skits about sex.
