"Basket Weaving 101" | MFA VS NYC, N+1/Faber and Faber
When I told my dad I had written a novella, he was skeptical. "Novella?" he said. "That chocolate spread?"
"In Defense of Millennial Politics" | Common Dreams, November 2017
Read it enough, and it starts to seem true: Millennials are too wracked by fear and anxiety, too fragile, too self-absorbed, too distracted by their smartphones, to be politically engaged. (co-written with Derek Denman)
"The Failed Rhetoric of the Abortion Debate" | WhoWhatWhy.org, August 2015.
The language used by both camps is akin to the all-caps hyperbole of a direct mail campaign, which leads to an exchange of biased catchphrases, not a nuanced debate about the multifaceted issue of abortion.
"Stink Bugs Still Terrorize American Homes" | Mental Floss, June 2015.
Another niche topic among stink bug enthusiasts is their taste. While one man reported that the stink bug was the “worst bug" he’d ever eaten (how many bugs has he eaten, anyway?), another thought it tasted just as it smelled—that is, like cilantro. Granted, the second guy was eating it in a taco.

Catalina Resort & Spa
Reflecting its status as a low-key island getaway, the Catalina Resort & Spa is designed in a classic Mediterranean style that melds the outdoors with the in. The buildings feature terra-cotta roofs, stucco walls, large open windows, and arched doorways. The spacious courtyard includes a heated pool and hot tub, while pathways wind through the palm-tree studded grounds and offer up plenty of patio seating and sunning areas. The grounds offer hilltop views of downtown and are well-kept, but can feel brown and bleak if you hit the resort during a California drought.
