Progress not perfection.


I am a father and freelancer (in that order) who, in addition to parenting-themed pieces, frequently writes on politics, society, and sobriety.  Among other outlets, I have contributed to Salon, Parents.com, and The Daily Beast.

Fun Facts

  • Myself, in three words:

    Flawed, disciplined, and improving.

  • The one piece of advice I'd give to a new parent:

  • The first thing I do when I wake up:

    Thank God that I woke up.
