What to Expect
I am a lecturer, comedian, and novelist. My material is geared toward adults, particularly those who like fiction, live theater, and humor. I have lectured and performed at colleges, literary events, writing groups, as well as theater festivals around the U.S., and Canada.
I am easy to work with and reliable. (For fifteen years, I was a senior editor/senior manager for PC World magazine.)

Additional Booking Notes
For audiences fewer than 50 people, I will not need a microphone. The show will be like live theater. (The Chronic Single's Handbook is satiric play.)
For boisterous audiences larger than 50 people, I will probably need a microphone. (If you have a wireless mic, I can move around and act more. But it's not necessary.)
